5 Years - Cast A 5.jpg



The beginning and the end

Treat yourself to a magnificent three course dinner at Teatro Vivaldi Restaurant while enjoying the moving, funny and touching story of The Last Five Years. This show is a fabulous story with both beautiful and stirring music as well as upbeat, toe tapping songs. With a live band and Canberra’s leading performers it is an experience you won’t forget for a long time.

The show follows the five year relationship between Cathy Hiatt and Jamie Wellerstein from when they meet, get married and eventually separate. The ingenious story format sees Cathy tell her story from the end of the relationship back to the beginning while Jamie tells his story from the beginning to the end.

The show was written by Jason Robert Brown and was produced Off-Broadway before going on to have great success internationally.
