The Last Five Years, a musical by Jason Robert Brown, will be presented Tuesday to Saturday, March 30 to April 3, 2021 by the Keene State College Department of Theatre and Dance. Directed by Kirstin Riegler, Keene State Associate Professor in Acting/ Musical Theatre, the musical explores the five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress, using a form of storytelling in which each character’s story is told in reverse chronological order. The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle of the play as their timelines intersect.
Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. each evening in the Redfern Arts Center’s Main Theatre, with a 2:00 p.m matinee scheduled for Saturday, April 3. Tickets are free and in-person seats are offered only to the Keene State College Community. The general public can access the performances as a free Livestream performance. Tickets will be available on March 16. Call the Redfern Box Office, 603-358-2168 or order online at keene.edu/arts/redfern.
