Jason Robert Brown's postmodern musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS, currently playing at Actor's Express Wed., NOV. 7, and through Nov. 24, leaves little doubt as to who's to blame when relationships fail. Tracking a relationship from its bitter end to its joyous beginning, The Last Five Years unmistakably finds fault with young novelist Jamie (Jonathan MacQueen), as the play begins when he's just ended his marriage to struggling actress Cathy (Natasha Drena; pictured). Directed by Kate Warner of Dad's Garage Theatre, The Last Five Years laces even its happiest moments with pain and amounts to an insightfully written, delicately performed bummer. $22-$27. Wed.-Sat., 8 p.m.; Sun., 2 p.m. 887 W. Marietta St. 404-607-SHOW. www.actors-express.com.
