Due to popular demand, The York Theatre Company in association with Edward Negley, Neil Berg and Adam Friedson, has announced a second extension through September 30th for one of the best reviewed shows of the year, Closer Than Ever with Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Music by David Shire now in performance at The York Theatre at Saint Peter's (Citicorp Building, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
With direction by Mr. Maltby, associate direction and choreography by Kurt Stamm and music direction by Andrew Gerle, the cast features Jacquelyn Piro Donovan (Miss Saigon, Les Misérables) George Dvorsky (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Julia Murney (Wicked, Wild Party) and Sal Viviano (The Full Monty).
Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire's musical treasure Closer Than Ever reopened in June at the York Theatre Company with an exciting new cast and fresh additions to the timeless score. 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 – Closer Than Ever at the York isn't merely a revival, it's the homecoming of an Off-Broadway classic.
The creative team includes James Morgan (sets), Nicole Wee (costumes), and Kirk Bookman (lights). The production stage manager is Bernita Robinson.
Closer Than Ever plays the following performance schedule through September 1: Mondays & Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m., Wednesdays through Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. Beginning September 4: the performance schedule will change to Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m., Wednesdays through Fridays at 8:00 p.m., Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m, and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.
