It's the homecoming of an Off-Broadway classic!

Performances continue for a limited run through July 14, 2012 at The York Theatre at Saint Peter's (Citicorp Building, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue). Opening Night is Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 8:00 p.m.

Under the direction of Mr. Maltby, and with music direction by Andrew Gerle, the cast features Broadway veterans Jenn Colella (Urban Cowboy, High Fidelity), George Dvorsky (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Tony Awad nominee Christiane Noll (Ragtime, Jekyll & Hyde) and Sal Viviano (The Full Monty).

Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire's musical treasure Closer Than Ever is back Off-Broadway at the York Theatre Company with an exciting new cast and fresh additions to the timeless score. When it premiered in 1989, the show spoke to a generation of theater-goers. 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), Kirk Bookman (lights), and Stephanie Wagner (Props). The Production Stage Manager is Bernita Robinson.
