This modern musical ingeniously chronicles the five-year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up and from break-up to meeting.

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine's ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show's longevity, and spurred by the show's regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan

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, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, 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 great opportunity for actors with both range and stamina. This intimate musical is perfect for small theatre companies and black box venues.

Founded by Mackenzie Lynn Trotter-Hicks, a graduate of New York Film Academy in Los Angeles. Wicked Slippers serves multi-forms of nuance entertainment in Central Louisiana. We want to bring a stand-up comedy as well as a cabaret scene downtown!

Mackenzie is the executive producer and artistic director for all theatrical and film events. She also offers the complete filmmaking and editing packages for Weddings, Gender Reveals, Vow Renewals, Birthday Parties, and whatever else you can think of! Mackenzie also offers private audition, acting and/singing lessons, as well as providing 30 to 60 minute consultating for social media brand management, YouTube, and marketing.
