OCP describes the production below:

"A captivating, intimate musical that retraces the rise and fall of a five-year romantic relationship. The story is presented in chronological order by Jamie, the man, and in reverse by Cathy, the woman, with the two versions of the story meeting only once—at their wedding in the middle.

Profoundly emotional with comedic moments sprinkled throughout, The Last Five Years is beautifully heartbreaking."
