Some students found activities outside of the student-created holiday tonight and made their way to the State Theatre’s upstairs venue for “The Last Five Years.”
The Attic, located in the upper section of the State Theatre, was set up with three rows of chairs on either side of the performance stage for tonight’s sold-out show.
The show had a cast of two, Jamie and Cathy, whose relationship unravels over the span of five years.
The show was told in opposing times, with Jamie starting at the beginning and moving forward chronologically while Cathy starts at the end and works backward.
The show was performed almost entirely by singing and had very few lines.
“The Last Five Years” contained scenes of both humor and sadness. Though there were many serious aspects in the show, the audience was brought to laughter on more than one occasion.
Sophomore Katelyn Molinaro said she was looking forward to the production because she had heard much of the music before.
“I’m excited to see [the show] because I’ve listened to the soundtrack,” Molinaro (sophomore-veterinary and biomedical sciences) said.
Molinaro said she thought the way the story was told, in opposing times, was an interesting concept.
“I think it makes [the performance more] dynamic,” she said.
