Maltby and Shire's Closer Than Ever

Maltby and Shire's Closer Than Ever
A riveting song cycle exploring the everyday struggles of love in the modern world.

A look into the private song vault of Richard Maltby, Jr., and David Shire (Big; Starting Here, Starting Now; Baby), the review, Maltby and Shire's Closer Than Ever, is filled to the brim with the brilliance for which these musical theatre giants are known.

Closer Than Ever is a nonstop exploration of everyday struggles in the "modern world." 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 and 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 and Shire, Closer Than Ever will inspire audiences to pause for self-reflection, whether presented as a fully realized production or a simple concert piece.
