Subject: Winding Road's first musical--The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown in January 2012


Winding Road Theater Ensemble continues it’s third season with Jason Robert Brown’s landmark 2001 one-act musical, The Last Five Years.

Playing January 6th through the 15th at the Cabaret Theatre at Arizona Theatre Company, and January 20th to the 22nd at St. Francis in the Foothills, The Last Five Years tells the story of Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress, through the five years of their relationship.

The brilliance of this musical, aside from the music and lyrics, comes in the form Brown chooses to tell the story. Cathy sings through their failed relationship starting at the end and traveling backwards in time to the beginning, while Jamie begins with a song at the end of their first date and ends with his decision end their marriage. The only time the couple come together on stage is midway through the show, when their stories intersect for their wedding.

Winding Road’s first musical stars two of Tucson’s premiere performers, Brian Levario and Ensemble member Amy Erbe, and directed by ensemble member Terry Erbe with musical direction by the very talented Khris Dodge.


Reservations can be made now by calling the box office at 401-3626.  Tickets may also be purchased through PayPal on our website

See you in January!
