LYSOA (Lynn Youth Street Outreach Outreach Advocacy) has teamed up with Arts After Hours for a special fundraising deal the evening of May 7th that includes an Italian dinner served at the Lynn Museum followed by a performance of The Last Five Years right around the corner in the LynnArts Building.
Dinner is 5pm to 7pm, the show at 8pm. It’s $40 to do both, or $25 for dinner only if you would like to support LYSOA but can’t make the show.

The Last Five Years
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Adrienne Boris
Music Direction by Joanna Schubert
LynnArts Black Box, 25 Exchange Street
“An emotionally powerful and intimate musical, The Last Five Years follows two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, an actor, telling her story backwards while Jamie, a novelist, tells his story chronologically.”
“Named one of Time Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, the Off-Broadway smash hit, The Last Five Years, has been one of the most popular plays in the country. Its continued regional popularity ensured The Last Five Years an Off-Broadway revival in 2013, and a film adaptation starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan (Smash, Super Girl) in 2015.”
“In order to motivate, guide, and assist our participants (at risk and proven risk) LYSOA offers different options for recognizing, developing and planning a program for our youth to achieve their goals and interests keeping them away from violent activities. LYSOA provides a complete support system to our participants by having one on one case management, consisting of weekly home visits and phone check in twice a week. Family case management is also provided, showing family support. LYSOA involves our youth in community activities teaching them skills to become productive members of society.”
