LAST FIVE YEARS ‘Molly Lynch & Oli Higginson take a backstage tour LIVE with Richard Ridge – Watch Now!
Seeing your favorite Broadway stars live on a Broadway stage might not be a reality for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it live from your screen. BroadwayWorld’s Richard Ridge keeps up to date with all of his latest projects on Backstage Live, bringing you in-depth interviews twice a week.
Watch below as he chats with West End stars Molly Lynch and Oli Higginson, who appear in Aria Entertainment’s film version of The Last Five Years, which is now available to stream on Broadway HD! The musical will take place at the Théâtre Vaudeville from September 17 to October 13, 2021.
Jason Robert Brown’s award-winning musical The Last Five Years will return to London’s West End for the first time in over a decade, after two sensational sold-out seasons at the Southwark Playhouse and an internationally broadcast performance and watched by audiences around the world. This emotionally powerful and moving story of two New Yorkers who fall in love and fall in love over the course of five years, is underscored by a beautifully bittersweet score, with ‘I’m Still Hurting’, ‘Goodbye Until Tomorrow’ ‘and’ I Can Do Better Than That ‘.
Full of romance, wit, and vivid storytelling, Jamie shares her story from the spark of the dizzying start to their relationship, while Cathy’s side is told backwards, since their turbulent partnership ended. The two characters cross paths only once, as their stories collide in the middle of the show.
Jonathan O’Boyle’s bold new production sees actor-musicians playing piano, ukulele and guitar live throughout the show, adding additional musical narrative to the story and unique magic to Brown’s exquisite songs. .
“The last five years have been the constant throughout [the past year]. We started the show just before the pandemic hit. We were in rehearsal and Jonathan [O’Boyle] was handing out hand sanitizer and we were like, “This is a bit dramatic, Jonathan!” Lynch joked. “Then we were in technology and everything just got bigger and bigger. But the show was something that we achieved through it all. “
