Musical theater geeks have been waiting for this one for a while. The new trailer for Richard LaGravenese’s adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical “The Last Five Years” has finally hit the web.
“The Last Five Years” stars Anna Kendrick, who is about to sing herself out of her shoes as Cinderella in “Into the Woods,” and Jeremy Jordan, who starred in the stage adaptation of the Disney film “Newsies.”
The story follows Jaime (Jordan), an up and coming novelist, and Cathy (Kendrick), an aspiring actress, on the journey of their five year relationship. But there’s an unexpected twist: Jaime’s side of the story is told in chronological order; his songs moving linearly through time. Cathy’s, however, moves backwards — her side of the story is told from the end of their relationship to the beginning.
“The Last Five Years” heads to theaters around Valentine’s Day, 2015. Check out the trailer below:
