Young Love and Sweet Songs
If you're in the mood for all the feels and some catchy tunes, go see The Last Five Years! No, no, no—not the 2014 film with Anna Kenrick and Jeremy Jordan, but the show at Aux Dog Theater playing May 19-June 11. Kir Kipness and Adam James star in the Tony-award winning musical about a novelist and an actress in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. Shows on Fridays and Saturdays run from 8-10pm, and Sunday matinees run from 2-4pm. Tickets are $15-$23. (Renée Chavez)

Follow a love story in an untraditional format, with one story moving forward in time while while the other story moves backwards meeting in the middle when they get married.
Remember what it is like to fall madly in love? That is the question answered by Tony Award winning writer and composer Jason Robert Brown in his Drama Desk Award winning musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS. But instead of telling the story in a traditional format, Jamie's story moves forward in time while Cathy's story moves backwards. They only "meet" in the middle when they get married. And yet the songs capture the full emotional, heart-stirring story of their last five years. Chosen by TIME Magazine as a Theater Top 10 of 2001, THE LAST FIVE YEARS has been translated into numerous languages with audiences around the world thrilling to Cathy and Jamie's story, making THE LAST FIVE YEARS Brown's most successful musical. The show opens May 19th and runs until June 11th. Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm. Tickets can be purchased at auxdogtheatre.org or by phone at (505) 254-7716. Info@auxdog.com
