Gala staging of The Last 5 Years - 12 Oct 2008

A gala staging of Jason Robert Brown's The Last 5 Years, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the West End’s Notes from New York series, will take place at the Haymarket Theatre on Sunday 12 Oct 2008 at 7.30pm

The show will feature Julie Atherton & Paul Spicer, associate artists of the Notes from New York series.

Newly published novelist Jamie and aspiring actress Cathy tell the tale of their raw and impassioned relationship in opposite directions and from destructively differing standpoints. This two-hander reminds us it's possible to feel claustrophobically close to and yet worlds apart from the one you hold closest to your heart.

Notes from New York started life in 2003. Its purpose is to present the work of contemporary musical theatre composers in the West End. Initially focusing on the work of US composers, it has more recently explored avenues closer to home. Following five presentations of material from the other side of the pond, the company presented Not(es) from New York, featuring the music of British composers Charles Miller and Grant Olding and created a seasonal show entitled Christmas in New York, in December 2006 and was revived in December 2007. It most recently presented Notes in Heels featuring the work of a selection of female composers from New York and now celebrates The Last 5 Years.
