The Last Five Years - Vocal Selections
Series: Vocal Selections
Composer: Jason Robert Brown
Jason Robert Brown, the creator of Parade and Songs for a New World, has written a distinctive new Off-Broadway musical. The Last Five Years tells the story of a failed marriage of 20-somethings: he a successful novelist, she a struggling actress. Her story is told in reverse, his conventionally moving forward. They meet in the middle at the point of their wedding. Brown's strong writing has found a solid following among musical theatre fans.
Our songbook features piano/vocal arrangements of 12 songs: Goodbye Until Tomorrow • I Can Do Better Than That • If I Didn't Believe in You • Moving Too Fast • The Next Ten Minutes • Nobody Needs to Know • A Part of That • The Schmuel Song • Shiksa Goddess • Still Hurting • A Summer in Ohio • When You Come Home to Me.
“Short, bittersweet and nearly perfect, Brown has come up with a winning combination of music and book.”
