After numerous Off-Broadway and international productions as well as a film adaptation starring Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, The Last Five Years finally arrives on the West End.

Written and directed by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years is a two-character musical that tracks the emotional course of young love. Jamie and Cathy are two twenty-something New Yorkers. Cathy is struggling to find work and Jamie is an aspiring author who is suddenly offered an incredible book deal. As their paths begin to diverge the young lovers’ relationship also begins to shift and change.

An emotional and intimate musical, The Last Five Years eschews the traditional formula of musical theatre and introduces a distinct, new structure that sees Jamie move forwards through the relationship and Cathy move backwards, with both characters meeting briefly on stage as their stories intertwine. The wonderful Samantha Barks (Les Misérables) and Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch) sing their hearts out in this London production of a musical that continues to be embraced by theatre-goers around the world.

The play was phenomenal!! As a fan of the musical, I would say I had "high" expectations; and the two leads lived up to them all. Would highly recommend for fans and new watchers alike- it's a very smart, funny and emotional play.

I've seen this show in the States at least 5 times. This stands up against all of them. No one will ever replace Norbert Leo Butz, but Jonathan Bailey comes damn close. Fascinating to see it directed by the genius that is Jason Robert Brown. Do NOT miss it!

This was a treat. The clever structure told from the 2 leads POV was excellent. Barks has the most exquisite voice and Bailey was just so likeable. SUPERB
