From end to beginning and beginning to end, Cathy and Jamie fall in and out of love in Jason Robert Brown’s modern masterpiece THE LAST FIVE YEARS. The musical features an unconventional structure: Jamie tells the story in forward chronological order, Cathy tells it in reverse and they meet once as they pass by each other, in the middle of the timeline. THE LAST FIVE YEARS is an emotional tour de force in fourteen songs written by one of the theatre’s greatest songwriters.
John and his daughter Caitlyn are birders. As they scan the skies over their backyard in suburban Maryland looking for elusive birds, years go by. Relationships begin and end. Children grow up and parents age. The climate and the world change in small and vast ways. BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA takes a close look at the relationship of a father and daughter over the course of a decade as they struggle to understand the parts of one another that defy understanding.
