Closer Than Ever, the hit musical revue by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr., opens May 31 at Masquers Playhouse in Point Richmond. Closer Than Ever was originally produced Off-Broadway in 1990. The production at Masquers is the West Coast premiere of the revised script, which debuted in a revival Off-Broadway at the York Theatre in 2012. Intimate, heartfelt and funny as hell, Closer Than Ever is an evening of song that celebrates personal triumphs and acknowledges the anxieties, the loss and “the lingering regrets connected to the point in life when it is too late to start over.” (New York Times) It’s about growing up and growing older, getting lost, gaining love and getting loopy.
The cast includes Coley Grundman, Shay Oglesby-Smith, Michelle Pond, LaMont Ridgell, Jennifer Stark and J. Scott Stewart. Directed by Peter Budinger and DC Scarpelli, Music Direction by Pat King, Choreography by Anjee Norgaard.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm with Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm on June 9, 16 and 30. The show plays through July 6. Tickets are $22 and all seats are general admission. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.masquers.org or by calling (510) 232-4031. The playhouse is located off of Highway 580 (Richmond Parkway exit) at 105 Park Place, Point Richmond, across from the Hotel Mac.
