Lionfish Entertainment Presents The Last Five Years – February 4th -14th, 2015
LIONFISH Entertainment is pleased to announce its inaugural production The Last Five Years running February 4th – 14th at The PAL Studio Theatre (300-581 Cardero Street).
Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties, Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. Starring Danny Balkwill and Diana Kaarina, the show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect.
Translated into a handful of languages and named one of Time Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013 and a film adaptation is being released in 2014 starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.
Individual Show tickets are priced between $20-$30. Tickets available by phone 1.800.656.0713, online www.lionfishentertainment.com, or at the door. (Note: all performances begin at 8pm except February 8 & 14 when performances are held at 2pm and 8pm).
