Dream Studio @ Henderson/Saturday

Dream Academy, known for its glitzy musical revues and slick stand-up shows, has fashioned itself a cozy little space in its Henderson Industrial Park studio for some off-Broadway action.

And christening its newly-renovated black box space is a crowd-pleasing musical: American composer Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years (2001).

The sung-through musical tracks a five-year relationship between Jamie (Linden Furnell), a novelist who finds meteoric success, and Cathy (Mina Ellen Kaye) an actress struggling to find her footing. His storyline unfolds in chronological order; hers, in reverse.
