Remember what it is like to fall madly in love? That is the question answered by Tony Award winning writer and composer Jason Robert Brown. And he should know since the show is loosely based on his own relationship. But instead of telling the story in a traditional format, Brown has created a series of contemporary and traditional Broadway songs in an intimately romantic and singularly moving score with Jamie's story moving forward while Cathy's story moves backwards. They only "meet" in the middle when they get married. And yet the songs capture the full emotional, heart-stirring story of their last five years. A winner of two Drama Desk Awards and chosen by TIME Magazine's Theater Top 10 of 2001, THE LAST FIVE YEARS has been translated into numerous languages with audiences around the world thrilling to Cathy and Jamie's story, making THE LAST FIVE YEARS Brown's most successful musical.

Michelle Estrada Allred’s SECRETOS is a new, original work, premiering at this year’s festival. One woman shares her “bathroom secrets” and invites us into the private moments from childhood to the present day that have shaped her life. These bathroom stories are universal as they speak to anyone who has ever stared at themselves in the mirror and questioned their beauty or cried in solitude. The bathroom can be a place of sanctuary--a place to hide or to dream.
