According to the New York Post, Tony-winning director Michael Mayer (American Idiot, Spring Awakening) is at the helm and has a stripped-down version of the show in mind that focuses on the characters and the songs.

Sunset Boulevard features music by Lloyd Webber with a book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black. The original production opened on Broadway in November 1994 and took home seven 1995 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Murphy is a Tony winner for her performances in The King and I and Passion. She has been Tony-nominated for her performances in Wonderful Town, Lovemusik and The People in the Picture.
