"The Last Five Years" Comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Jan. 21-30


"The Last Five Years," a fresh look at modern romance, is coming to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre. Presented by Cheng/Ferrara Productions in association with Playful Theatre Productions, the show opens on Friday, Jan. 21 at 9 p.m. An opening night reception will be held at 8 p.m. prior to the show's start. Other performance dates and times are: Saturdays, Jan. 22 and 29 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. The Jan. 22 performance will be American Sign Language interpreted. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer’s West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

This Off-Broadway musical hit, first presented in 2002, was written by Tony-Award winning composer Jason Robert Brown. The show covers the lifespan of a relationship – from first meeting to wedding to ultimate breakup. The story is told from two perspectives: husband Jamie starts the story on the day the couple meets, while wife Cathy looks back from the relationship’s end. With moments of rich comedy and keen poignancy, the show captures some of the heartbreaking and universally felt moments of contemporary romance.

This intimate production stars Vicky Czarnik and Anthony Vitalo. It is directed by Frank Ferrara of Florence, with musical direction by Nicholas Cheng of Hamilton.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $10 for students and children. Free parking is available next to the theatre.
