Wolfe, Kantor to perform ‘The Last Five Years’ at Huntington

The Huntington Theatre Company has announced it will present Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor in a concert version of Jason Robert Brown’s “The Last Five Years’’ on Nov. 23-24.

Wolfe and Kantor starred in a recent off-Broadway production, directed by Brown, of the two-character musical about the evolution and dissolution of a marriage between a novelist and an actress. Since premiering more than a decade ago, “The Last Five Years’’ has built a fervent following, along with a substantial number of detractors.

Wolfe and Kantor will give a total of three performances at the Wimberly Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts: at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Nov. 23, and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 24.


Brown was recently named Blodgett Artist-in-Residence at Harvard for the spring of 2014, in which capacity he will lead master classes and workshops for students.
