Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor to Reprise Roles in THE LAST FIVE YEARS in Concert in Miami
Miami New Drama (MiND) at Colony Theatre is presenting a one-night-only concert version of the beloved 2013 revival of Off-Broadway show, The Last Five Years.
The evening will showcase Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown’s composition of the celebrated musical. The leading Broadway stars, Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor, will sing on stage as they portray Cathy and Jamie, a young couple with a passion to find love, with a pianist alongside.
The praised show will have its concert showcase on Sunday, March 5, 2017, at 7 p.m.
“We feel very fortunate to be working with the talented Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor for The Last Five Years,” said Michel Hausmann, Artistic Director of MiND. “We can’t wait for Miami to experience this unique musical concert with Broadway stars.”
Kantor and Wolfe are both celebrated young Broadway stars who will both be making their Miami debut with this critically acclaimed and highly contemporary show, which they have toured with rapturous reception all over the U.S.
Ten years ago, Wolfe made her concert debut at Carnegie Hall as a headliner with the Cincinnati Pops and since then has been seen in Broadway favorites including Falsettos, Bullets Over Broadway, Everyday Rapture, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Kantor made his Broadway debut as Mark Cohen in Rent and has continued his work in Off-Broadway productions of Avenue Q, Falling for Eve, the revival of The Last Five Years and recently played the role of Motel Kamzoil on Broadway’s Fiddler on the Roof.
The Last Five Years follows two twenty-something New Yorkers that dive into a marriage fueled by their desire to find “the one.” In the musical, the couple finds navigating the waters of love and matrimony daunting in a city where professional and personal passions collide. Cathy and Jamie face their emotions on their own in a unique twist at one instant in time. While Cathy’s journey is told from end to beginning, Jamie expresses his love from beginning to end as the two share the same stage. This young couple’s hope that love endures the test of time will prove only the strongest relationships survive.
