Direction and choreography comes from Stacey Haynes with co-direction by Tony Award-winning original lyricist Richard Malty Jr.

Completing the creative team are musical director Nick Barstow, production designer Andrew Exeter, costume designer Natalie Alverez and assistant director Matt Byham.

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.
