A laugh out loud musical comedy based on the fairy tale “The Princess and the Pea”
Closer Than Ever is a two-act musical revue. Each song is a story: about love, security, and finding happiness in an increasingly complicated world. Songs contain themes about aging, mid-life crisis, second marriages, and role reversals with parents, as well as satirical jabs at Muzak, working couples and unrequited love.
The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of our human history. Wendy Kesselman’s adaptation of the original, Pulitzer Prize award-winning script by Goodrich and Hackett draws from previously unpublished parts of Anne Frank’s real-life diary, allowing the audience to experience Anne in a way that breathes life into this passionate, complex young woman, allowing us to share her relatable experience of adolescence as a familiarly modern teenager.
