The composer is currently preparing for the Broadway revival of Cats, which will open at the Neil Simon Theatre in August; he is also represented with the West End transfer of School of Rock, playing the Winter Garden.
“And, maybe, possibly Sunset, who knows?” said Webber. “It’s kind of like London buses, they either don’t come or they come altogether.” Though he couldn’t reveal too much information, he said, “It’s certainly [being] looked at.” Lloyd Webber was on the red carpet with his Tony-winning Norma, Close, who said she would love to revisit the role on Broadway.
The 2016 semi-staged English National Opera production of the Webber-Don Black-Christopher Hampton musical starred Close reprising the leading role of Norma Desmond. The actress won the Tony Award as Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in the role over 20 years ago in the show's original Broadway engagement.
In the most recent staging, Lonny Price directed a cast at the London Coliseum that also included Michael Xavier as Joe Gillis, with Fred Johanson as Max Von Mayerling (a role he has previously played for Gothenburg Opera) and Siobhan Dillon as Betty Schaefer. The show opened April 4 and ran through May 7.
Lyricist Black told the New York Post in April there was a very good chance of the show heading to New York, though no official announcement has been made.
