“The Last 5 Years” debuts at Music Mountain Theatre


Music Mountain Theatre will continue its 2021 Spring Season with “The Last 5 Years,” premiering May 7.

The show will run for six performances ending on May 16. The theater will continue at 50% indoor capacity while also offering the option to stream at home. For the safety of patrons, the theater blocks off seats to allow for social distancing between groups.

Inspired by the composer’s own troubled marriage, this musical story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie (Karl Weigand), a rising novelist, and Cathy (Jen Fischer), a struggling performer.

The storytelling juxtaposes Jamie’s chronological account against Cathy’s memories told in reverse. The characters only interact once, on the day of their wedding, dealing out equal parts joy, heartbreak, and monotony.

Show times are 8 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The theater strives to provide a safe environment for all with rigorous cleaning procedures and more recently, the installation of state-of-the-art air scrubbers to increase indoor air quality and reduce contaminants.
