"The Last Five Years" Show Reviews
What our patrons are saying about "The Last Five Years"...
I saw "The Last Five Years" Saturday night. It's Tuesday, and I'm still not over it. What ALT put together for that show was nothing less than extraordinary. Annika and Joshua were perfect, and the vision that Stephen gave to the show was special. The musicians were flawless. ALT reached a new level with this one.

Just when I think Amarillo Little Theater has reached its peak you pull something like The Last Five Years out of the hat. Thank you. Wonderful vocals, wonderful music, and wonderful direction. Marvelous evening of theater.
-John Miller - Amarillo
This ranks with Light In The Piazza as my favorite musical ever.
You could take the ALT production and play it on Broadway just as it is. It's that good.

A Facebook message from a patron after seeing "The Last Five Years"...
Saw The Last Five Years today at ALT. Holy moly! It was absolutely wonderful. I'd only ever heard a few of the songs from the show and had no idea how it would be in its entirety. Allen was right when he said that it's like a kick in the gut. However, the music is breathtakingly beautiful as are the singers' voices. If you're in the area, you really shouldn't miss it. Congrats you guys!

The Last Five Years was a brilliant musical with a duo of talented actors. It really puts things in perspective relationship-wise and it was masterfully done. I loved the show and look forward to the next one!

A letter to Allen from a patron the morning after seeing "The Last Five Years"...
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed “The Last Five Years” on preview night.
I really love my cast recording CD, and when I saw the show on the ALT schedule, I thought how important casting and direction was going to be to make it happen. I’ve gotta say both were outstanding.
I believed in every song that the characters were at the place in their relationship where the song said they were. I loved the choice of long lace dress for the museum/marriage scene. I loved how the pair switched doors as the middle – just a great evening of theater.
Thanks for making it happen, and congratulations to Stephen and cast and crew.
P.S. The Raspberry Demise was delicious.
