An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties
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 two characters only meet once, at their
wedding in the middle of the show.
