Scene News: The Last Five Queers – A Song Cycle

After a sold out preview run, ‘The Last Five Queers’ is back for a headline, two-week season in Melbourne’s 2015 Midwinta Festival. Experience the beautiful music of Tony Award-winning composer, lyricist and playwright Jason Robert Brown in a whole new light.

The Last Five Queers is a song cycle of music by renowned composer Jason Robert Brown, with a slight twist. The stunning music has been reimagined to tell the intertwined lives of five characters and their understanding of sexuality.

The production features performances from five of Australia’s finest up-and-coming music theatre stars. The performers traverse love, loss, loneliness and sexuality, observing the personal and universal stories inherent to the music. It is a heart warming production, filled with laughter and touching stories that will connect with any audience member who has played a lead character in their own love story.

The Last Five Queers is a brand new Australian work. It opens on the 28th of July and runs for two weeks. Bookings are highly recommended.

“… musically, this show is a polished, tightly constructed work that carry’s audiences effortlessly, from start to finish”
