The Love/Loss Cycle – The Last Five Years and john &
A Red Branch first!
These two chamber musicals depict romantic, fraternal, and parental
love and the loss of all three. Each show will be performed in repertory
to give artist and audience alike the opportunity to investigate
the idiosyncrasies of these distinct forms of love and loss.
The Last Five Years
Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert
Explore the five-year
relationship between aspiring novelist Jamie and struggling actress
Cathy in a way unlike you’ve ever before experienced. Some say men
are from Mars and women are from Venus. Others say men and women
speak different languages. In The Last Five Years, Jamie
and Cathy are almost never even in the same place at the same time.
Experience the creation and demise of this five-year union from
two uniquely different perspectives.
john & jen
Music by Andrew Lippa
Lyrics by Tom Greenwald
Jen Tracy loves her
brother John. After she loses him to Vietnam, she pours her affection
into her son John. Follow Jen as she navigates the intricacies of
love and loss across four decades and two parallel relationships.
From the composer who brought The Addams Family and most
recently Big Fish to Broadway, we present this poignant
look at relationships.

Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
on the play by Marivaux
love. Convincing disguises. This musical adaptation of the classic
play by the same name has it all. You will relish this farcical
romp about the lengths to which love can drive a person. Triumph
of Love has hometown roots as it made its premiere at Center
Stage while author James Magruder served as Resident Dramaturg.

The beloved characters
