For two weekends, starting on Friday, June 3, Home Made Theater will present The Last Five Years, a musical with book, music, and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.

            The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers 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.

            Making his Home Made Theater directorial debut is Michael Gatzendorfer. The artistic team includes Musical Director Richard Cherry, Scenic Designer Michael McDermott, Lighting Designer Matthew Kopans, Sound Designer Tom Moeller, Costume Designer Erin Fenton, Properties Designer Maura Pickett, and Stage Manager Susan Turner.

            The couple will be played by two different casts: Logan Haynes (last seen with Home Made Theater in They’re Playing Our Song), with Lauren Kerr and Will Heatley with Kate Landino. Each couple will perform twice each weekend. For a complete schedule please visit http://www.HomeMadeTheater.org.

            Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, June 3rd, 4th, 10th and 11th at 7:30 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, June 4th, 5th, 11th, and 12th, at 2 pm.  All performances are at the Dee Sarno Theater, inside Saratoga Arts, 320 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. Tickets are available at Home Made Theater’s website, or by calling (518) 587-4427 during business hours.

            For the safety of everyone, masks must be worn at all times inside the building.
