REVIEWS

Jenn Colella, George Dvorsky, Christiane Noll and Sal Viviano could lead a pretty nifty “Follies” cast in a decade or so. Mr. Viviano and especially Mr. Dvorsky sound fine and deliver everything that’s being asked of them, even though much of their material — songs with titles like “Fathers of Fathers” and “One of the Good Guys” — exposes Mr. Maltby at his most ploddingly earnest. Ms. Noll, typically constrained by the virtuous-soprano roles she often gets, visibly enjoys cutting loose on songs like “The Bear, the Tiger, the Hamster and the Mole,” while the rubber-faced Ms. Colella, who seems to have been cut loose from birth, is as batty and brilliant as ever on showstoppers like “Miss Byrd” and “Back on Base.”

It premiered at a time in musical theater when the craft of songwriting was increasingly playing second fiddle to elaborate special effects. Seeing as much hasn't changed since then (have you seen "Ghost the Musical"?), "Closer than Ever" feels more relevant than ever before. With generous doses of humor, heart and wit, its songs explore dating, sex, friendships, aging, longing, parenthood and past regrets.
