We are delighted to announce that Artform will be presenting Jason Robert Brown's 'The Last Five Years' in February 2019!
This contemporary story by Jason Robert Brown explores a five-year relationship between a rising novelist, and a struggling actress, falling in and out of love. An emotional and often comical story, the music combines classic Broadway with funk and rock.

Summer show news!
Artform is delighted to have secured the rights to the Stephen Sondheim show ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ for June 2019.
This story of friendship follows the fortunes of three aspiring creatives and the situations which test that friendship over the years- but uses reverse chronology, giving each scene a layered irony.
Based on the 1934 play by George S.Kaufman and Moss Hart, George Furth and Sondheim updated it to cover the period 1957-1976.
An initial flop on Broadway, the show premiered successfully in the UK in 1984, but did not receive its West End premiere until the year 2000, when it won an Olivier for Best Musical.
A review by Michael Billington called it ‘a show of emotional substance ‘ and and also stated that Sondheim’s shows work best in small spaces where their musical intricacy is transparent and every line is audible. The West End revival at the Menier also won the Critics Circle Theatre award for Best Musical.
We will be performing the show at our resident venue: The Broadway Studio, Catford, with a cast of approximately 12 performers.
