The digital revival of Maltby and Shire’s Outer Critics Circle Award winning and Drama Desk Award nominated musical revue will be available to watch through BroadwayHD from the 23rd September.
Ginger Quiff Media and BroadwayHD have collaborated to create this brand new digital revival of Maltby and Shire’s Closer Than Ever. The 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).
This award winning song cycle examines the trials and tribulations of modern love, taking audiences on a journey of lust and romance, marriage and ageing, unrequited love and obsession while questioning what it means to be human.
The digital revival of Closer Than Ever is directed and choreographed by television, film, and theatre maker 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), alongside Tony Nominee and Academy Award-winning original composer David Shire (Big, Saturday Night Fever, Baby). It is produced by Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn for Ginger Quiff Media and Stewart F. Lane, Bonnie Comley and Gio Messale for BroadwayHD.
Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire said: “We’re thrilled to be able to revive this project once
again, with a fantastic West End cast at the helm! We’re excited to see what the talent will
unlock in this brand-new adaptation and can’t wait for audiences around the world to witness
