The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

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.

“One of the half-dozen finest American theatre scores of the last decade."
