Closer Than Ever

2009 Cabaret Production

Music by David Shire
Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.
Conceived by Steven Scott Smith

The 2009 edition of Footlite's annual cabaret production will be directed by Dean Reynolds.

Each of the 24 songs in this intimate revue is a story: an intimate, insightful tale about love, security, happiness - and holding onto them in a world that pulls you in a hundred directions at once. Maltby and Shire bring their celebrated craft and contemporary sensibility to songs about aging, mid-life crisis, second marriages, and role reversals with parents, as well as wicked satirical jabs at Muzak, working couples and unrequited love.
