Closer Than Ever

Neil Eckersley Presents
Closer Than Ever
Lyrics by Richard Maltby Jnr, Music by David Shire

In this Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Off-Broadway Alliance Award winning companion to their hit revue Starting Here, Starting Now, Maltby and Shire follow their earlier songs of innocence with 26 wise and witty songs of experience.

As with their earlier revue, each song in Closer Than Ever tell us a story. Maltby and Shire bring their celebrated craft and contemporary sensibility to an intimate, insightful tale about love, security, happiness and holding onto them in a crazy world.

Premièring in Massachusetts in 1989, Closer Than Ever soon opened Off-Broadway where it ran for over 300 performances. In 2010, the show celebrated its 20th anniversary with concurrent shows at Queens Theatre in the Park and the Bristol Riverside Theatre. It returned to New York Off-Broadway in 2012 and played in London Off-West End at Jermyn Street Theatre in 2014​.

Closer Than Ever is produced by Neil Eckersley with musical direction by Nick Barstow and stars Wendy Carr (Princess Ida), Richard Carson (Miss Saigon, Wicked), Emily Chesterton (Shout! The Mod Musical) and Nicholas Corre (Book of Mormon, Bar Mitzvah Boy).
