Plot Summary & Audition Notes

List of Characters in The Last Five Years

The Last Five Years Sheet Music (Vocal Selections)

The Last Five Years 2002 Off-Broadway Cast Recording

A contemporary song-cycle.

Cathy and Jamie’s relationship has lasted five years. As the story begins, Cathy is at the end of the relationship and Jamie is at the beginning. With inter-cutting scenes, we watch Jamie move forward in time as Cathy moves backward.

"A Miracle Would Happen" is an excellent choice for an audition piece for an edgy contemporary show as it is short, uptempo yet shows off lyrical qualities as well as personality and acting ability. The trick is finding the sheet music, as it is missing from the "Vocal Selections" book.

Catherine Hiatt (Late 20s - Early 30's)

Jamie Wellerstein (Late 20's - Early 30's)
