I'd love to see them write another musical- for all its faults, Closer... had a fantastic score and Neil's lyrics were exceptionally good.

'Closer To Heaven' was simply heavenly.

re: Pet Shop Ballet

Brilliantly crafted and it's a shame it didn't run.
The cast recording is superb.

It was performed last in Australia I believe. There is no general license available, but I would approach PSB management direct- I suspect they would be quite open to a Manchester production!!!

PS Though heavy subject matter The Normal Heart also had a lot of humour when it played on stage.
