A rebound from unrequited love; the wonder of new parenthood; painful divorce and later joyous remarriage; lunchtime liaisons.  Every life is full of moments.  Every person sometimes feels closer than ever – but closer to what?

Closer Than Ever is a smart and funny musical revue with no cliched story (it has no story).  Instead, each tune introduces you to new characters; each hummable number offers you laughter and tears; each song asks you to explore the moments a life may face.

Every autumn Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan Society performs a more unusual piece in smaller venues; this year is no exception.  We bring the rarely performed Closer Than Ever, by Maltby & Shire.  First performed in 1989, it won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical.  It was also revived in New York as recently as 2012.

In a world where the same “old favourites” are available to see time and time again, this is something different.  Closer Than Ever is a rare gem; an evening offering poignant charm through every door.
