Drama Builds at Noce

The jazz club Noce brings a little drama to its stage once again with the production of “The Last Five Years,” a musical by Jason Robert Brown starring Katy Merriman and Max Wellman. Performances are June 2-11.

The emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their 20s who fall in and out of love was adapted as a 2014 movie starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

Noce will produce this show in the main stage room normally set aside for live jazz and cabaret performances. The intimate setting will feature a full pit of professional musicians, including two cellos along with violin. Showtimes vary. For details, click here or call 515-244-5399.
