Fremont Community Theatre and Director Mitchell Antesky announce the cast for the Drama Desk Award Winning musical “The Last Five Years”, with music, book and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, the 2014 Tony Award Winner for “The Bridges of Madison County”. This two-person musical explores the five-year relationship of a couple with a bit of a twist in the storytelling.
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, telling her story backwards while Jamie, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.
Monica Siesel will appear as CATHERINE HIATT: The character arcs from a woman stunned by a betrayal and a divorce that she is only beginning to understand to an ambitious, fresh-faced girl in a new relationship.
Adam Cox will appear as JAMIE WELLERSTEIN: The character arcs from an ambitious guy on a promising first date with a dazzling career to someone who is blinded by success and ego. He is very lovable, yet makes unintentional choices that sabotages his own happiness.
The live music for this production will also require a pianist and a string quartet consisting of violin, 2 cellos, acoustic guitar and string bass. Interested individuals should contact the director for further details.
