The multi award-winning, off-Broadway musical, The Last Five Years, made its début on the local theatre stage on Friday 20 November.

 

MASQUERADE Theatre Company is proud to announce the staging of Jason Robert Brown’s multi award-winning, off-Broadway musical, The Last Five Years. Directed by Anthony Bezzina, and starring Rachel Fabri in the role of Cathy and Joseph Zammit as Jamie.

Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years details the story of a struggling actress whose story is told backwards, while up-and-coming novelist, Jamie, tells his story chronologically. The unconventional structure of this two-person musical allows the two characters to meet only once throughout.

The Last Five Years premiered at Chicago’s Northlight Theatre in 2001, with multiple US and international productions taking place since then, including in Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Germany, Italy, Canada, Spain, South Africa, the UK and now Malta.

The local production, directed by Anthony Bezzina, who recently produced the hit One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, also includes a live band made up of six musicians, with musical arrangements and direction by Jonathan Ellul. Cathy Lawlor is the show’s vocal coach and the set was created by Italian stage designer Aldo Moretti.

Tickets to the show, taking place at Blue Box, M Space, Msida,  between 27-29 November, can be purchased from http://bluebox.azurewebsites.net/. Tickets  cost between €20 and €25.
