Firehouse musical continues this weekend

Two actors explore 'The Last Five Years'

This is the last weekend for the Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre's production of "The Last Five Years" at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton. The musical premiered in Chicago in 2001 and was produced off-Broadway in March 2002.

This production features David Judson and Joy Sherratt, the two professional actors who recently starred in "Chicago," as it looks at a five-year relationship told from two different perspectives. Jamie (Judson) tells the story of the relationship from the first meeting to the final breakup while Cathy (Sherratt) remembers backwards from the breakup to the first date.

The score, which will be performed with a full orchestration of piano, strings and guitar, contains both funny songs and others that are beautifully poignant.

Tickets are $18-$33, and shows are at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow, and at 2 p.m. Sunday. For tickets call 931-4848 or go to www.firehousearts.org.

Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre is the professional theater company for the Firehouse Arts Center, which is located at 4444 Railroad Ave. in downtown Pleasanton.
