CLOSER THAN EVER is a nonstop exploration of everyday struggles in the "modern world," especially those surrounding love. Topics ranging from unrequited adoration to aging to Muzak are tackled with resounding sincerity and precisely placed hilarity. Each song is a unique story told by a new character taking audiences not only into the songbook of Mr. Maltby & Mr. Shire, but into the minds of the individuals facing these completely relatable challenges.
A superb choice for companies that have previously produced the work of Maltby & Shire, CLOSER THAN EVER will inspire audiences to chortle with delight and pause for self reflection whether presented as a fully realized production or a simple concert piece.

The breathtaking Broadway production required no less than two directors, Harold Prince and Michael Bennett. Follies represents the only time either shared directorial credit.
