ABOUT THE SHOW
From the Ovation award-winning company that brought you One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: The Immersive Experience comes an intimate, multisensory staging of the classic love story, like never seen before.
An emotionally powerful musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show follows Cathy, an aspiring actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist, as their story is told both backwards and forwards.
Utilizing cutting edge techniques including scent design, 360° degree sound, curated cocktail design, and an interactive pre-show experience, this re-envisioned take on a classic production allows audiences to delve into Cathy and Jamie’s complex relationship and experience love and heartbreak while engaging all five senses.

“Smell is one of strongest memory triggers. Through the use of scents, The Last Five Years: A Multisensory Experience creates an interactive show…an immersive appetizer for the uninitiated and a sorbet for the connoisseur. Like a good tasting meal, you’re left wanting more, the literal smell of a fine time hanging about you.”
Anthony Robinson, No Proscenium
"This musical production is at one a powerful serenade of life and love’s precarious challenges and new beginnings, performed by a cohesive duo. The After Hours Theatre Company is a great example of small musical theatre offerings here in our city of angels."
