What the critics are saying... From Covert Ottawa Guy: I cannot emphasize enough the amount of talent that it takes to command a stage and captivate an audience for 80 full minutes...These two [Michelle et Louie] are infinitely talented, and captured my full attention for the entirety of the performance. [Michelle] Gendron really brought the emotion of this heartbreaking story to life. From her beautiful, powerful vocals to her emotive facial expressions, the audience could feel the incredible pain accompanying the end of this woman’s marriage. Despite the sad moments, however, Gendron wowed the audience with her charisma and humour. His [Louie's] innate ability to express joy, love, unhappiness, discontent, guilt, and remorse in both his expressions and his voice brought a depth to the character of Jamie that really allowed for the audience to feel for him. From Caitlin at The Visitorium: The set immediately caught my eye and allowed for [Don] Douglas to really play with some cool lighting effects that helped distinguish mood, character, and time. The set also gave the actors an effective place to play with props throughout the show, and was just plain gorgeous to look at. Creative, utilitarian, and pretty: that’s a perfect set trifecta, I’d say. This was a really great night out and I’d encourage anyone who loves beautiful music sung well and coupled with an interesting storyline to check out The Last Five Years. This is 90 minutes of pure melodic joy, heartache, and thought-provoking drama that will have you asking what it really means to be a supportive partner. From Iris Winston at Capital Critics The symbolic tug-of-war between his [Jamie's] growing fame as an author and her [Cathy's] increasing lack of confidence as a struggling actress comes through with every song.
