We don't think Arizona Onstage Productions founder Kevin Johnson will get many money-back requests.

Johnson promised a refund  to whomever was disappointed in AOP's production of "Closer Than Ever." This song-filled play, which opened tonight, has some beautiful music, moving lyrics, gorgeous singers, and plenty to chew on once you leave the theater.

Performances are  8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 18 at the Cabaret Theatre at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave.. No performance Aug. 16. Tickets, $30, are at arizonaonstage.org or 882-6574.
