The Last Five Years is a story that seemed to have great success in it’s off-broadway run, and is a musical that seems to have a small cult-following in the theatre community. It was also made into a film in 2014 (Starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan), which didn’t do well at the Cinema box office and received generally mixed reviews, therefore I was intrigued to watch the film prior to seeing the show. However, while it was nice to have the reference and understanding from seeing the film, this was not necessary, as I much preferred the way the story came across on stage as it captured the emotions and story so much better.
