‘THE LAST FIVE YEARS'
7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $14-$18.

Here's something we don't do around these parts too often: a modern musical. This one, penned by Jason Robert Brown, tells the story of a five-year relationship between a rising novelist and a struggling actress. The modern romance takes a novel approach to plot. The actress' storyline begins at the end of the couple's marriage and travels backwards, while the novelist's starts with the couple's first date and travels forward. The actors' only interaction happens mid-way through the play, during a wedding scene. Andy Hall directs and Steve Whaley provides musical direction. The musical continues through March 7.
