ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Marriage has always been known as something you have to work at and there is a play that depicts the struggle of marriage, but in a unique way.
The Musical Theatre Southwest presents “The Last Five Years.” This is a story about a five year relationship between a rising novelist and a struggling actress.
Kristen Bowers stars as Cathy, the struggling actress married to the rising novelist Jamie, played by Sean Schwebke.
The story told from Cathy’s view is in reverse chronological order – beginning at the end of the marriage – while Jamie’s story starts after they had just met.
The only time the characters interact is for a wedding song in the middle of the play as their time lines intersect.
Show times for “The Last Five Years” are Friday, Feb.13, through Sunday. Feb. 22. Friday and Saturday performances start at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances at 4 p.m.
