Queens Theatre in the Park (QTP) and Bristol Riverside Theatre, in association with Neil Berg and Adam Friedson, will present a new production of the award-winning musical revue “Closer Than Ever” directed by Richard Malty. Jr. and starring original cast members Sally Mayes and Lynne Wintersteller from April 16-25 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm; Saturday at 2pm; and Sunday at 3pm) in the Claire Shulman Playhouse Main Stage Theatre at Queens Theatre in the Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, NY.  Tickets are $32-38 and are available at www.queenstheatre.org or by phone at 718-760-0064.

In this 20th Anniversary production cast members Mayes and Wintersteller along with original musical director Patrick Brady are reunited under the direction of Tony Award-winning director, Richard Maltby Jr.  The production is also part of celebration of a month long celebration and series of events including honoring them at CAP 21’s annual gala on March 11th, the opening night gala of "Closer Than Ever" on April 16th , and the opening April 30th at the McCarter Center of their new musical "Take Flight".

With music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., Closer Than Ever is a theatrical revue filled with wise and witty “songs of experience,” that reflect on marriage, parents, children, and lasting friendships. As part of their ongoing efforts to update and keep the work relevant to a new generation of theatergoers Maltby and Shire are adding new material which includes a new song called “Dating Again” about the pitfalls and pleasures of being single again, as well as updating outdated lyrics and additional material.

In addition to the early casting including Ms. Mayes and Ms. Wintersteller, the production will also feature co-direction and choreography by J. Kurt Stamm, musical direction by Patrick Brady, scenery designed by Roman Tatarowicz, costumes designed by Thome Heyer and lighting designed by Ryan O’Gara.
