The Last Five Years: A musical written by Jason Robert Brown. Premiered in Chicago year 2001 and was then produced as one of the hit in Broadway musical. Since then it has had numerous productions both in the United States and internationally.

And now, it is brought in to Kuala Lumpur by the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) and directed by Christopher Ling. Attended the musical show last thursday upon receiving an invitation from Denslee, founder of StageKL.

The story explores a five years relationship between Jamie Wellerstein (played by Jon Chew) a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt (played by Tabitha Kong) a struggling actress.

Throughout the musical, it 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.

The Last Five Years was inspired by Jason Robert Brown’s failed marriage to Theresa O’Neill.

Overall, the Last Five Years is a remarkable music show that has the essence of bitter sweet symphony. Leaving the audience a touch of love and hate.

The Last Five Years is definitely one of the best musical that I’ve ever watched and also my favorite.
