A Sneak Peek at Signature's Sunset Boulevard, With Florence Lacey and D.B. Bonds

Bonds (The Phantom of the Opera; Les Misérables; Signature's The Visit) as scribe Joe; Susan Derry (Wonderful Town) as love interest and fellow screenwriter Betty; and Ed Dixon (Les Miz, The Iceman Cometh, The Three Musketeers) as Norma's mysterious major domo Max von Mayerling. Three-time Helen Hayes Award winner Fred Shiffman is Sheldrake, and Harry Winter is Cecil B. DeMille.
