Winner of eight Tony Awards, this landmark work has electrified audiences around the world. In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond (Hollis Resnik) lives in a fantasy world. When impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive domain, he is persuaded to work on Norma's "masterpiece," a screenplay that she believes will put her back in front of cameras. Seduced by Norma and her luxurious lifestyle, he finds himself trapped in her clutches until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free, with shattering consequences.
Based on the iconic Billy Wilder film, Sunset Boulevard the musical has a long history of its own, with productions and revivals around the world starring Patti LuPone, Glenn Close, Diahann Carroll, Petula Clark, and others. The production also features a rich score including the songs "With One Look" and "As If We Never Said Goodbye."
