West Michigan Wednesday: “The Last Five Years” at Central Park Players

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

West Michigan Wednesday

This weekend “The Last Five Years” opens at Central Park Players in Grand Haven. As always, here is the blurb:

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

There is an upcoming move staring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan based on this musical but you don’t have to wait until it opens to hear this beautiful music and touching story! You know how they say that the book is always better than the movie? Well, no offense to Anna and Jeremy, but I would always rather see a live production! This show is going to be done black box style with very limited seating. Audience members will be close enough (at times only a foot or two away) to see every nuance and gesture in this touching piece of theatre. As an actor and audience member, I LOVE black box theatre. You really feel like a fly on the wall or like you’re out to lunch with a friend sharing a juicy story. I think this intimate setting is perfect for the nature of this show.  The songs are beautiful, the team working on this show are some of my favorite people, and I feel that anyone who has loved and lost can relate to this moving story. Needless to say, I absolutely adore this two-person power house of a musical and I cannot wait to see it in person.
“The Last Five Years” will run from October 3-5 and 10-11, 2014.
Call the box office for tickets at (616) 850-6566
Seating is Limited
