The Ultimate Last Five Years Dream-Casting Game

So The Last Five Years is happening. I mean, you may have heard. Your Twitter feed may have spent the last week dream-casting and re-dream-casting, and re-dream-casting yet again.

We thought it might be nice to help you out, as you work through the process of deciding on your own personal fantasy world Last Five Years, so we created a bit of a cheat sheet.

This works just like those games you played in Highlights Magazine at the dentist’s office when you were six. You remember, right? We included a sample (above) just in case your childhood was awful, but we’re pretty sure you can handle it: just draw a line between your favorite guy and favorite girl. Or your six favorite guys and girls. Or all of them.

So have at it, kids! Also, you are welcome.

    Heidi Blickenstaff and Chrisitian Borle or Santino Fontana and Jessie Mueller please and thank you!

    I don’t know why, but I think Hunter Foster & Laura Benanti would be a neat matchup.

  • Leah Angstman June 6, 2012, 2:14 pm

    What, no Raúl Esparza? Well, there goes my dream-cast.

  • Esther June 6, 2012, 2:26 pm

    I’d vote for Adam Chanler-Berat and Celia Keenan-Bolger. They have the hyphenated-name thing going and they’re both terrific in Peter and the Starcatcher.

    This is genius. And I’m totally going with Christian Borle and Jessie Mueller – both great character actors with great voices, and both totally capable of breaking your heart. Also, then they should get together and have supertalented Broadway babies, but that’s for another post.

    Laura Benanti would kick so much ass as Cathy. Maybe Santino Fontana for Jamie!

    Now that gay marriage is legal in NY, can I ask for Santino Fontana & Aaron Tveit?

  • CB June 6, 2012, 4:04 pm

    There is no Mary Faber on this list, I demand a recount.

  • Siobhan June 7, 2012, 7:39 pm

    Laura Benanti, Mary Faber or Patti Murin for Cathy and Steve Kazee, Benjamin Walker, or Adam Chandler-Berat for Jaime. I might mean that respectively. Laura Benanti and Steve Kazee would totally make an awesome pair.

  • Kate June 13, 2012, 11:57 am

    Easy! Josh Young & Patti Murin.

  • AMR June 13, 2012, 6:08 pm

    anyone concerned about the ages of some of these actors?
    aren’t they a bit old to be playing these roles? not that they are old in general! but for this, maybe.

    @AMR that’s why it’s a dreamcast! besides, who said that JRB wouldn’t do some rewrites for the right people?

  • Melissa June 14, 2012, 8:52 am

    Definitely Santino Fontana and Patti Murin.

  • sam June 22, 2012, 10:28 pm

    Laura Osnes and Steve Kazee all the way.
