Told entirely through songs, Closer Than Ever has been described as a "bookless show musical." But don't let the lack of traditional dialogue trick you into thinking this musical, presented by the New Repertory Theatre, is lacking in story. The show's 24 self-contained songs -- with lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. (Fosse, Miss Saigon) and music by David Shire (Big: the musical) -- deal with topics like aging, unrequited love, friendships and mid-life crises. The New York Times has actually celebrated the show as having, "one of the half-dozen finest American theater scores of the last decade." Inspired by real-life experiences and stories, Closer Than Ever won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and netted Drama Desk Award nominations for both Maltby and Shire. And its message to value the little things in life remains as meaningful today as ever. Learn More

In this Award-winning musical with the melodious styles of 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, a hapless florist shop worker, Seymour, finds a mysterious plant. As the plant begins to flourish and thrive, so does the flower shop’s business. Seymour quickly develops the confidence needed to successfully court the woman he desires — his co-worker Audrey — and together they begin to pursue their dreams. However, the audience soon realizes that Seymour is just a pawn in this paranormal plant’s diabolical scheme. This fun cult classic features the beloved and well-known songs “Suppertime,” “Somewhere That’s Green,” and “Suddenly Seymour.”
