THE LAST FIVE YEARS, COMING TO MONTE

'...saw it... LOVED it!' - Hadley Titus, Fleur Du Cap Judge
'...a JOY TO WATCH from start to finish.' - David Viviers, award-winning actor
'...a WORLD-CLASS production.' - Melissa Haiden, award-winning actress
'...it's a KNOCK-OUT!' - Robyn Cohen for The Cape Robyn
'... BEYOND entertaining - it is THRILLING!' - Bruce Dennil for pARTcipate
'...a show you DON'T want to miss!' - Faeron for Broadway World South Africa

Following a sold-out debut season at Theatre on the Bay in Cape Town, The Last Five Years is coming to the legendary Pieter Toerien Theatre at Monte Casino from 30 November 2022 to 11 December 2022.
Winner of a Drama Desk Award and named one of TIME Magazine's 10 best shows of 2001, Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years has captivated audiences with a score of mesmerising brilliance and an ingenious libretto. Numerous international productions established the musical's place as a masterpiece of modern musical theatre.
The Last Five Years is a one-act drama-comedy telling the bittersweet love story of Catherine Hiatt, a struggling actress, and Jamie Wellerstein, an up-and-coming novelist. This old story of love-found and love-lost is told in a fresh and new manner. Cathy reflects on their relationship from end to first meeting, whilst Jamie's story moves chronologically. They meet only once, in the middle of the show.
Featured in the coveted role of Jamie is Fleur-Du-Cap nominee, Anthony Downing and playing opposite him as Cathy, is Fleur-Du-Cap nominee Zoë McLaughlin. At the helm of the creative team is award-winning director Paul Griffiths with musical direction by Jaco Griessel. To fully realise Jason Robert Brown's vision, the cast will be accompanied live on stage by an ensemble of six musicians.
