Nick Jonas is set to make his return to Broadway in the lead role of the upcoming debut of The Last Five Years. The musical, which will be premiering on Broadway’s famous Great White Way, features Nick as aspiring novelist Jamie opposite Tony winner Adrienne Warren, who will be portraying his wife Cathy. The show, directed by Whitney White, will offer a unique perspective on a New York City-based marriage through the alternating viewpoints of the husband and wife over the course of five years.

This is not the first time Nick Jonas has graced the Broadway stage. In addition to his successful run at the Marquis theater with the Jonas Brothers, Nick has also appeared in productions like How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. As a child, he and his brother Joe Jonas even shared the stage in iconic shows like Les Miserables and Beauty and the Beast.

The Last Five Years, originally written by Jason Robert Brown, has previously been mounted off-Broadway in 2001 and 2013. The show’s unique storytelling style, which presents the couple’s highs and lows in alternating chronological order, has garnered praise and critical acclaim. A film adaptation of the musical starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan was released in 2014.

Composer Jason Robert Brown expressed his excitement about the Broadway revival of The Last Five Years, stating that having Nick and Adrienne take on the lead roles is a dream come true. With Whitney White at the helm as the director, the production promises to be a captivating and emotional journey through the complexities of love and relationships.

In addition to his upcoming Broadway role, Nick Jonas is currently busy filming the movie Power Ballad in Dublin alongside Paul Rudd. The film, directed by John Carney, is a musical comedy that follows the story of a wedding singer and a rock star whose lives intersect through a shared song. Nick’s wife Priyanka Chopra, who shared her support for him on social media, expressed her excitement for his latest project and praised his hard work ethic.

The Broadway debut of The Last Five Years is highly anticipated and is expected to premiere in 2025. With a talented cast led by Nick Jonas and Adrienne Warren, under the direction of Whitney White, audiences can look forward to a moving and unforgettable theatrical experience that delves into the complexities of love, marriage, and the passage of time.
