Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire's musical treasure, CLOSER THAN EVER is back Off-Broadway at the York Theatre Company with an exciting new cast and fresh additions to the timeless score. When it premiered in 1989, the show spoke to a generation of theater-goers and featured "one of the half-dozen finest American theater scores of the last decade" (New York Times). An intimate musical about love, friendship, security, happiness – and holding onto those essentials in a world that pulls us in a hundred directions at once – CLOSER THAN EVER at the York isn't merely a revival; it's the homecoming of an Off-Broadway classic.
This homecoming of an Off-Broadway classic is from Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire, featuring direction by Maltby, music direction by Andrew Gerle and choreography by Kurt Stamm.
Performances June 5 - July 14, 2012
