The York Theatre Company's critically acclaimed production of Closer Than Ever, the revue that features the songs of Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire, is offering free tickets to its Nov. 1 performance for anyone who has tickets to a canceled New York production.



"Have tickets to a cancelled Off-Broadway show Thursday night?" a press statement asks. "Come see Closer Than Ever for free at the York. Just show your unused tickets or confirmation orders at the box office between 12 and 6 and we'll get you in for free while tickets last... Spread the word!"

With direction by Maltby, associate direction and choreography by Kurt Stamm and music direction by Andrew Gerle, the cast features George Dvorsky, Anika Larsen, Marya Grandy and Sal Viviano.

The production at The York Theatre at Saint Peter’s is described as "an intimate revue about love, friendship, security, happiness – and holding onto those essentials in a world that pulls us in a hundred directions at once."

The creative team includes James Morgan (set), Nicole Wee (costumes) and Kirk Bookman (lights).  The production stage manager is Bernita Robinson.

Performances continue through Nov. 4.

Tickets are priced at $67.50 and are available online at www.yorktheatre.org, by calling (212) 935-5820, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre at Saint Peter’s (Citicorp Building, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
