    The Last Five Years

    • The Last 5 Years 2 300
    • Last FIve Years 300
    • Robin Davis 2230

    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.

    Get your tickets in person at the Charleston Visitor’s Center, 375 Meeting Street, online at Piccolo Spoleto or by phone at 843 579 3100.

    Directed by Robin Burke.
