Pier One play opens


Pier One Theatre’s production of “The Last Five Years” opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the theater on the Homer Spit. Written by Jason Robert Brown, the musical fea- tures Katelyn Wythe and Nathan Lander. Lance Petersen and Mark Robinson direct, with Robinson and Talia Moss playing keyboards.

“The Last Five Years” follows the lives of a couple, Jamie, a novelist, and Cathy, a struggling actress. In a twist, the chronolo- gy follows Cathy’s story backward in time, starting at the end of their marriage, and Ja- mie’s story forward in time. The characters do not directly interact except for a wed- ding song as their timelines intersect. It also was made into a movie by the same name starring Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect”) and Jeremy Jordan (“Joyful Noise”).

“The Last Five Years” shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and continues at 7:30 p.m. June 12, 13, 19 and 20. Tickets are $14 general, $13 seniors, $12 Raven’s Club and $10 youth, on sale at the Homer Bookstore or the Pier One box office.
