jul 15-17 | The Last 5 Years| PT apprentice project

For those of you who have been following the blog or the PT season this year, you've probably gotten to know Shalyn McFaul. One of our apprentices, she worked the box office and front of house for the season, helped paint and rebuild the theatre for THE PASSION PROJECT, assistant stage-managed REFUGE OF LIES, and starred as Eileen Brennan in the just-closed GODSPELL. Well, apparently that wasn't enough work for her, because now she's producing and starring in THE LAST 5 YEARS July 15-17 with a pay-what-you-can preview July 14th.

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. JRB won Drama Desk Awards for the music and the lyrics after the Off-Broadway premiere in 2002 starring Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott.
