Stage Scene LA- Highly Recommended

"...The Last Five Years, Jason Robert Brownís exquisite musical two-hander, showcases UCLA talent to stunning effect as part of Pacific Resident Theatreís Sunday Concert Series in the companyís newly inaugurated intimate cabaret space."

Stage Raw- Somewhat Recommended

"...It is an interesting conceit, but a confusing one to watch and make sense of in real time. Brownís music hearkens back to the time, reminiscent of an Ally McBeal score. In that it is nostalgic, even pretty, but the lyrics veer between poignant and plain. Since the show is essentially comprised of musical monologues, it is easy to tune out during moments of exposition; there isnít a lot, itís mostly general emotion. And if youíre not familiar with the musical beforehand, no one could blame you for the misapprehension that the show is linear for quite some time."
