The Last Five Years

Shakespeare & Friends presents the hit musical The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown.

The powerhouse cast, comprised of the two leads from the Broadway Tour of Pretty Woman - Bethany McDonald and local favorite Chase Wolfe - promise a performance not to be missed.

The Last Five Years, a recipient of a Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Musical, explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young New Yorkers 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 inventive musical style draws on a number of musical genres, including pop, jazz, classical, Klezmer, Latin, Blues, Rock, and Folk.

The Last Five Years will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm, June 13-16 at Tryon Fine Arts Center's Pavillion.

Tickets are $20 per person. Beverages will be for sale.

Sean of the South

A multi-instrumentalist, he started playing mandolin when he was seven, guitar at age eight, and played piano in church at age nine.

Having lived through enough heartache, joy, embarrassment, love, and renewal for several lifetimes, Sean condenses our human failures and triumphs into stories that make the Southern heart resound.
His wildly popular blog and musical podcast, "Sean of the South," is suited for anyone with red clay on their car and sand in their shoes. His work has appeared in Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, Southern Living, Garden and Gun, and he has authored fifteen books.

His one-man shows have earned him a cult-like following in the southeastern United States and among closeted accordion players worldwide. Sean is a master storyteller in the tradition of Will Rogers, Mark Twain, and Lewis Grizzard. His brutally candid, laugh-out-loud, and sometimes painful tales remind us that we are not alone in our human experience. His tales of covered-dish suppers, camp meeting sing-alongs, funerals gone awry, and hounds that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge have audiences drying their eyes one minute and slapping their knees the next.

The concert begins at 6:30 PM. Beverages will be available for purchase.
