$67.50

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.
