The Last Five Years is a moving and beautiful, but rarely-produced, 2-person song cycle written by Jason Robert Brown starring Nashville Theatre professionals, Michael Adcock and Jenna Pryor.

In a conceptual-art style of storytelling, this work explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress.

Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met).

The characters interact only during a wedding song as their timelines intersect.

…we’ll also include a box of tissues.

THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues



ONE NIGHT ONLY!!!:  Dec. 20.   8 pm & 10 pm


Tickets for the 8pm Show


Tickets for the 10pm Show



THIS SHOW CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE & THEMES, and ALCOHOL WILL BE SERVED…(much like your normal, family Christmas gathering — but with the whole world watching)

Tickets are $15 each and are non-refundable.

This isn’t the Santa you’ve come to know and love. But don’t take our word for it; come hear it straight from the, er, Reindeers’ mouths. All those rumors about him and the elves? And Rudolph’s little secret? And Vixen’s scandalous story? Yes, the reindeer finally speak up — and they don’t hold back! This is a no-hooves-barred, reinless romp through the North Pole, as each of “The Eight” takes a turn on the stage to tell their own side of the story.

A cross between Scrooged and The Accused, THE EIGHT offers a Christmas alternative to those adults looking for something just a little different, and a lot more grown up, this holiday season as the eight reindeers who pull Santa’s sleigh every year are called to bear witness to the reputation and innocence (or not) of their employer.

On paper, this is a frightfully cynical exercise in besmirching the reputation of the jolly fat man in the red suit. In performance, it is a series of eight very hysterical and very poignant monologues that aim to explore the nature of cover-ups, and which bring into question the value of speaking out when remaining silent might be better for the greater good.
