“Shiksa Goddess” From Upcoming Show

So you can’t wait for Jeremy Jordan (Smash) and Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) to star in the just-announced Richard LaGravenese-directed big-screen musical “The Last Five Years”? Well, this month Off Broadway’s Second Stage is staging a revival of composer Jason Robert Brown’s 2002 chamber musical, which follows an aspiring writer and a struggling actress through the ups and downs of twentysomething love in New York City. Brown’s show has garnered a cult following since it premiered a decade ago, thanks in part to its ingenious structure: His story unfolds chronologically from their first meeting, while hers is told backwards from the dissolution of their marriage. The above clip features a Minneapolis workshop production from a decade ago.
