This latest revival of Maltby and Shire’s Outer Critics Circle Award winning and Drama Desk Award nominated musical revue will be exclusively available to watch through BroadwayHD.
It has been announced that Ginger Quiff Media and BroadwayHD are teaming up to create this new revival Closer Than Ever, which will be made available to watch from September this year.
This new production is set to star X Factor winner Dalton Harris, alongside Lee Mead (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat; Wicked), Kerry Ellis (Wicked; We Will Rock You) and Grace Mouat (Six; & Juliet).
A captivating and hilarious song cycle which delves into the trials and tribulations of modern
love, Maltby and Shire’s Closer Than Ever will take audiences on a journey of lust and romance, marriage and ageing, unrequited love and obsession. This uplifting revue is a relatable and easy-
going exploration of what it means to be human and to love – the perfect tonic to the last year or so.
Closer Than Ever is directed and choreographed by Stacey Haynes (The Lion King, Grease and Hairspray: The School Musical), and co-directed by Tony Award-winning original lyricist Richard Maltby Jr. (Miss. Saigon, Big, Ain’t Misbehavin), as well as Tony Nominee and Academy Award-winning original composer David Shire (Big, Saturday Night Fever, Baby).
Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn of Ginger Quiff Media said: ” We’re excited to take the next step in our relationship with BroadwayHD to create an original production with this fantastic cast and crew. Although theatres may be re-opening, we still think there is a huge place for digital work allowing people across the world to access high quality entertainment.”
Closer Than Ever will be available to stream via BroadwayHD from September.
