Lamplighters Theatre presents
THE LAST FIVE YEARS
written and composed by Jason Robert Brown
“Take a breath, take a step, take a chance.”
Lamplighters Theatre presents The Last Five Years, Tony-Award winner Jason Robert Brown’s poignant and smart contemporary musical of five years in the relationship of an ambitious young writer, Jamie, and his struggling actress wife, Cathy.
Funny, uplifting, and told in a unique non-linear form, this musical captures some of the most heartbreaking and universally felt moments of modern romance.
Live three-piece orchestra!

It’s been 15 months since we’ve been together and we’re looking
forward to seeing you again. Your Board, Play Selection Committee,
and volunteers have been working hard to get us up, running,
and better than we were before we had to close our doors.
We’ve chosen ‘The Last Five Years’ as our re-opening, pre-season
production. It’s a poignant and uplifting musical that captures
some of the most universally felt moments of modern romance.
The show will start Friday, July 23rd, and run through August 15th.
We will announce our full-season shortly and have season subscriptions available for six full shows soon. Season subscribers will receive information first with a short time frame to respond. Then we will open the opportunity to purchase season tickets to all. Watch your mail for your invitation.
We are requiring all patrons attending this first show to be fully vaccinated. This is to protect each other, our staff, and our actors. In these uncertain times, especially with the variants, we’re doing everything we can to make your visit with us as safe as possible and fun. We encourage you to wear a mask if you so choose. Our staff will wear masks as well.
We have revised our opening time requirements slightly:
In order to minimize congestion in the lobby, we will open the outside lobby door and the inside theatre door simultaneously, one-half hour before showtime. We are requesting that you proceed thru the lobby and head directly into the theater after picking up your tickets.
Will call will be alphabetical by the last name at tables set up in the lobby.
The Box Office window will be used only for those patrons purchasing tickets. This will help us maintain social distancing in the lobby and adjacent spaces.
This show has no intermission and no refreshments will be available except for bottled water.
For those of you with credits on your account, we are requesting that you use them for the season shows and not this first one. It will help us get through the startup. We will understand if you can’t, but it would be appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
