Lyrics by RICHARD MALTBY JR.
Music by DAVID SHIRE
Conceived by STEVEN SCOTT SMITH
Produced in association with Thousand Islands Playhouse, Gananoque, ON
MUSICAL REVUE - Filled with hilarious and touching songs about aging, parenting, and dreams both fulfilled and unrequited, Closer Than Ever is like a musical "how-to" manual for the middle aged.
The show’s self-contained songs — with lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. (Fosse, Miss Saigon) and music by David Shire (Big: the musical) — tell an intimate, insightful tale about love, security and happiness - and of holding onto them in a world that pulls you in a hundred directions at once. Inspired by real-life experiences and stories, Closer Than Ever won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and netted Drama Desk Award nominations for both Maltby and Shire. Its message to value the little things in life remains as meaningful today as ever.
