About this show

You're a screenwriter. Just an average Joe. Living an average life with your typical Hollywood dreams. So how do you end up under the hypnotic spell of the great Norma Desmond? It's the classic Billy Wilder Hollywood satire told a whole new way with the words and music of the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber. It all starts when down-on-his-luck writer, Joe Gillis, finds sanctuary in the opulent mansion of the eccentric and reclusive silent film star Norma Desmond. She's rich in everything except what she craves most, love and adoration. He's flat broke and needs a place to stay. It's definitely a match made in Hollywood. Typical Hollywood. So why is it when Norma is finally, "Ready for my close-up, Mr. Demille," it ends up being a mugshot?
