Merrick Lecture Hall 1021 Dulaney Valley Rd, Towson, MD 21286, USA

Closer Than Ever is a collection of songs by lyricist/director Richard Maltby and composer David Shire.  Written in 1989, the show has enjoyed broad enthusiastic success both in the United States and throughout the world and it won the New York Outer Critics Circle award for best off-Broadway musical in 1989.  The York Theater in New York wrote this about its current revival:  "It is 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."  The quality of the music inspired the New York Times critic to call it "one of the half-dozen finest American theater scores of the last decade."  It calls for a small cast and will be performed in Merrick Lecture Hall.
