My jaw hit the floor yesterday when I saw the news.

Those of you who know me at all know that I’ve been obsessed with the musical, The Last 5 Years, for ages. I even got Kailey in on it.

I sang a piece from the show in high school concerts, my voice recitals, and I regularly sing TL5Y pieces for auditions.

My dream role by far is Cathy in The Last 5 Years. The show has that kind of music that will never stop being incredible to me. The lyrics, swoon. The score… gah.

I’ll stop gushing and just tell you why I’m going on about it.

My newest girl crush, Anna Kendrick (loved her in past movies, but I can’t. get. enough. of Pitch Perfect), just signed to play Cathy in a FILM ADAPTATION of The Last 5 Years.

If you aren’t on the Anna Kendrick love train, just watch this.


Yes. Here.


I’m dying. I’m so excited. How did I not know this was becoming a movie?

Even though Anna is a little young for the role, I think she’ll pull it off well. Now, I have high hopes/expectations for the role of Jamie.

And if you couldn’t give two flips about The Last 5 Years, I’ll tell you something else that’s finally happening.

Guess what opens in Virginia Beach today?

It’s goin’ down. My wallet already hurts.

Say it with me: FINAL-FREAKING-LY!

    That girl is SO talented. I hope she doesn’t develop a drug problem or something because she’s going to have one heck of a career.

    So, I’m a HUGE lover of musicals, but somehow The Last Five Years never got on my radar until you started talking about it on your blog.

    And, um, I just cried reading through the synopsis on wikipedia.

    oh, if the synopsis made you cry, just you wait. some of my all-time favorite lyrics come from that show. if you’ve ever been though a heartwrenching breakup (who hasn’t?), it’ll do you in.

    AWESOME. Gonna listen to the soundtrack on my commute home from work. And then probably crawl into bed and mourn love lost. And it’s all your fault.

    but when you have fantastic lyrics to belt in the shower, you’ll thaaaank me!

    I actually had a friend who looks JUST like her as well. It’s strange!

    I wonder if we look the same then :)

    wow, I had no idea she could sing! that was amazing!

    Omg I LOVE the music from The Last 5 Years! I’ve always wanted to see it performed but can never find it! I’m so excited they are making this a movie though! I agree that Anna Kendrick does seem young for the part- and I’m not sure she’s what I imagined with the music but I’m sure it will be great! Can’t wait to hear who they will pick for Jamie!

    1. I wish a whole foods would come to WV – that would be the day pigs fly probably.
    2. I have never heard of the Last five years – don’t kill me.
    3. After reading about it however, I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT!

    I won’t kill you, but you need to go listen to the music now. :)

    So exciting that your Whole Foods is opening! That place is such a money pit for me…but I love it all the same. :-)
