Sunset Boulevard

Broadway
Musical
Three-time Tony Award-winner Glenn Close returns to Broadway in her most iconic role, Norma Desmond, in a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Sunset Boulevard, based on the classic and Academy Award-winning Billy Wilder film. Direct from a bravura sold-out engagement earlier this year at the English National Opera (ENO), which marked Ms. Close's West End debut, this production of Sunset Boulevard will feature a 40-piece orchestra, the largest on Broadway.

SYNOPSIS: In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.
