According to a news release, “The Last Five Years” is “a uniquely staged multimedia production, featuring the combined talents of the TCC’s theatre, music, and film departments. “The Last Five Years” is a contemporary, ambitious and emotional musical that ingeniously chronicles the five-year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up … or is it from break-up to meeting? Audiences have to decide, because “The Last Five Years” is an intensely personal and creative look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told simultaneously from both points of view – one telling the story from first date to eventual divorce, and the other story arc from divorce back to the magical first date. It is bittersweet; it is sweetly bitter?”
