Named one of TIME Magazine's ten best shows of 2001, The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, an actress, telling her story backwards while Jamie, a writer, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. Featuring a two-person cast, The Last Five Years is a completely socially (and at times, emotionally) distant production. By showing their storylines moving in opposite directions, this compelling musical shows what can happen when a relationship moves in opposite directions as well.

We know there may be some questions about HOW we are doing live theatre currently, so we want to provide you with some details on how we are working to keep everyone safe during this time.

We are truly doing everything in our power to create a safe space for you to be able to enjoy some entertainment; an evening of high quality theater. Is it gonna feel a little weird? Sure. Is it worth going through all of this in order to at least provide the option of you having an evening out of your house? We believe it is.

Below you can see all of the precautions that we are taking in order to keep you safe, and, if you feel comfortable, we would love to see you (from a distance) to enjoy a night of live entertainment.

In an effort to keep our patrons, actors, volunteers, musicians, and staff safe during this time, Eight O’Clock Theatre and the CPPAC have implemented the following measures in accordance with CDC as well as local and state guidelines:

 1. All surfaces will be sanitized before and after every performance.

 2. Socially distant audience cabaret seating 6 feet apart from one another. 

 3. Each cast member, musician, staff member, and volunteer will submit to a temperature reading prior to each     rehearsal and performance.

4. Each cast member, staff member, and volunteer will wear a mask as often as possible during each        performance  and will remain 6- 12 feet away from audience members at all times.

 5. We will not recycle playbills at any performance, and a virtual playbill will be available to view!

 6. Patrons are asked to maintain 6' separation after the show as they exit the theater.

 7. Congregating in the lobby will not be allowed. If a family member is there to see a cast member after the show,     they must wait in the parking lot .

8. Both of the cast members (only 2) will appear on stage separately for the majority of the show.

 9. Each of the 6 musicians will be seated 6 feet away from each other, and located in a separate area behind the set,     away from cast and audience.

10. All safety protocols will be followed backstage and in the green room/dressing rooms.

11. All props have been disinfected before and after each performance.

12. The cast will not appear in the lobby after the show.

13. There will not be an intermission. The show will run approximately 90 minutes long. 

14. If a performance is canceled, the box office is fully prepared to refund your money.
