I don’t want you to hurt, I don’t want you to sink
but you know what I think, I think you’ll be fine
just hang on and you’ll see
but don’t make me wait ‘till you do
to be happy with you,
will you listen to me
Nobody Needs To Know | The Last Five Years
all right, the panic recedes

Sherie Rene Scott - Climbing Uphill (from The Last Five Years)
A day in the life of Shoshana Bean — remember when Shoshana was supposed to be starting up a regular vlog series? and Shoshana and Megan were going to have their own also? Yeah that never happened, but we still have this gem with Megan flashing her underwear (again) and Julia Murney as a very tall lesbian
Sammie’s Top 20 Musicals: Take 2 | The Last Five Years
Will you share your life with me for the next ten minutes? For the next ten summers until the world explodes.
There are two reasons why I love The Last Five Years. The first is I hate happiness, and the second is Jason Robert Brown’s brilliance. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve listened to this CD, when the end comes around I am absolutely devastated. I’m pretty sure if the story had been played out in a linear fashion, it would still break me, just because these characters and their story is so organic and real, playing on what can strain any relationship. But in seeing Cathy’s story backwards, as she goes from heartbreak to utter joy, just makes everything worse. However, despite all this, I will continue to listen and adore this show because Jason Robert Brown writes so intricately and fantastically. These songs are so beautiful, I cannot keep myself away. And Sherie and Norbert sound so good, making this one of my favorite cast recordings, I’m pretty sure. As sad as I am every time I listen, it’s so good I just want to listen again and again.
tl;dr, Jason Robert Brown is a life ruiner.
