Those who know me well know that I'm a self professed musical theatre nerd. I played the violin in the Western Canada premiere of The Last 5 Years before I moved to the UK and fell in love with Jason Robert Brown and his brilliant shows.
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of 5 years. Cathy (woman) starts the show at the end of their relationship, and Jamie (man) starts the show at the beginning. The two are never on-stage together except right in the middle for their wedding scene. It's a fantastic show, with fantastic music. Cathy is one of my dream roles! The Off-Broadway premiere in 2002 starred two of my favorite actors Norbert Leo Butz, and Sherie Rene Scott.
"Nobody Needs to Know" - The Last 5 Years by Jason Robert Brown. Forever one of my favorite musicals. This song is more heartbreaking in context. Check it out.
