Told entirely through song, Closer Than Ever has been described as a “bookless show musical.” But don’t let the lack of traditional dialogue trick you into thinking this musical lacks a story. The show’s 24 wise and witty songs – with lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. (Fosse, Miss Saigon) and music by David Shire (Big: The Musical) – deal with topics like aging, unrequited love, friendships and midlife crises. The New York Times celebrated Closer Than Ever as having, “one of the half-dozen finest American theater scores of the last decade,” and it won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical. Inspired by real-life experiences, the production intertwines insightful tales about love, security, happiness, and self-definition. See Mazeppa Productions’ take on the acclaimed musical at Christ Church Neighborhood House in Philadelphia.
