Lambert Jackson Productions, in association with The Other Palace, today announce a “virtual lockdown production” of Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years starring Danny Becker as Jamie (The Prince Of Egypt, The Light In The Piazza) and Lauren Samuels as Cathy (Romantics Anonymous, Bend It Like Beckham), with Samuels also making her directorial debut. The actors will record their parts entirely in isolation, using only what is available to them, which will be edited together into a full-length show. The production will be streamed for three nights on the 25, 26 and 27 June at 7.30pm, with tickets at £8, and only a limited number of spaces available per show to emulate a shared theatre experience.
The award-winning musical, The Last Five Years, is an emotionally powerful musical about two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, the play has seen numerous productions around the world including a film adaptation starring Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, but it is now to be produced in an entirely new and innovative way.
An exclusive presale will take place from midday on Thursday 4 June – please visit www.theotherpalace.co.uk
Tickets will go on general sale at midday on Friday 5 June.
