Masquerade Theatre Company is staging Jason Robert Brown’s multi-award-winning, off-Broadway musical The Last Five Years. The musical will star Rachel Fabri in the role of Cathy and Joseph Zammit as Jamie.

Written by Tony Award-winning composer Brown, The Last Five Years details the story of a struggling actress whose story is told backwards, while hotspot up-and-coming novelist Jamie tells his story chronologically.

The unconventional structure of this two-person musical allows the two characters to meet only once throughout.

The Last Five Years premiered at Chicago’s Northlight Theatre in 2001, with multiple US and international productions taking place since then, including in Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Germany, Italy, Canada, Spain, South Africa, the UK and now Malta.

The local production, directed by Anthony Bezzina, who recently produced the hit One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, will include a live band made up of six musicians, with musical arrangements and direction by Jonathan Ellul. Cathy Lawlor is the show’s vocal coach, and the set is being created by Italian stage designer Aldo Moretti.

• The Last Five Years is being staged at Blue Box, M Space, Msida, between November 20-23 and 27-29. Tickets may be obtained online from bluebox.azurewebsites.net/.
