The Last 5 Years
September 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - October 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm$30
Aaron Lamb and Katherine Strohmaier present Jason Robert Brown’s beloved off-Broadway musical The Last 5 Years, this September 21 through October 2 in the Taproot Theatre’s Isaac Studio Black Box. Originally conceived 10 years ago out of countless late-night piano sessions in their New Jersey apartment, professional actors, pianists and life-long friends Katherine Strohmaier (Cathy) and Aaron Lamb (Jamie) have finally brought their “crazy” idea to the Seattle stage. As time passes (backwards for Cathy, forwards for Jamie), each accompanies the other, switching off seamlessly until they both play at once, during the musical’s only duet.
Its complexity will astound you; its grace will melt you. Do not miss it!
