When it premiered in 1989, the show spoke to a generation of theater-goers and featured "one of the half-dozen finest American theater scores of the last decade" (New York Times). An intimate musical about love, friendship, security, happiness - and holding onto those essentials in a world that pulls us in a hundred directions at once.

    Cellulite and 2nd Chances as the Stuff of a Revue

    Eric Grode

    June 21, 2012: Step aside, all you apple-cheeked newspaper boys and American idiots, you little mermaids and littler orphans. The grown-ups have something to say. You may want to take some notes — and not just because you’ll be one of them soon enough.

    Closer Than Ever

    Brian Scott Lipton

    October 24, 2012: Marriage, dating, parenthood, sex. These subjects -- and the panoply of stories behind them -- remain constant through time, which is why Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire's deliciously tuneful, often pungent musical revue Closer Than Ever, now at the York Theatre Company, feels just as fresh as it did when many of us first heard it 23 years ago.

    Closer Than Ever (2012)

    Thom Geier

    October 24, 2012: Musical theater, like Hollywood, tends to be fixated on first love — or at least young love. For a refreshing burst of counterprogramming, Off Broadway's York Theatre has brought back the 1989 musical revue Closer Than Ever, an enchanting evening from the songwriting duo Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire featuring a quartet of performers well past their ingenue years.

    Closer Than Ever To A Hit

    Michael Riedel

    October 24, 2012: It’s polished, witty, tuneful and, if you’ve hit middle age, unsettling. In the 23 years since it debuted at off-Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theatre, “Closer Than Ever,” Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire’s revue about adulthood and its baggage, has become a pocket-size classic of the American musical theater.

    ‘Closer Than Ever’ at York Theatre

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    October 24, 2012: The York Theatre Company wraps its 15-month look back at Off-Broadway musicals with a wonderfully performed revival of “Closer Than Ever, a two-act revue that opened in November 1989 at the Cherry Lane Theatre and ran for 312 performances. It must’ve been a nice antidote, coming on the heels (and paws) of big British Broadway shows at the time.
