"When love is a matter of when, not why."
In celebration of their fifth anniversary, 9 Works Theatrical is set to stage one of the greatest musicals of all time – "The Last Five Years," a sung-through musical by Jason Robert Brown.
"The Last Five Years" tackles the story of Jamie Wellerstein, which will be played by actor and commercial director Joaquin Valdes, and Cathy Hyatt, played by singer-actress and MYX VJ Nikki Gil.
According to Nikki, "Cathy is a struggling stage actress who's maybe in her mid-20's when she met Jaime." Jaime, on the other hand, "is a rising star in terms of literature... Yung struggle nilang dalawa as we experience in the 5 years of the relationship is this push-and-pull of insecurities, attention, need of being together and parang naging competitive yung relationship nila sa isa't isa," shares Joaquin.
The story-telling of this play is very interesting as one character starts from the beginning while the other one starts from the end. "It's very interesting and challenging. Hopefully when we put our hearts and our voices out there on stage, more people will fall in love with the music," added Joaquin.
