About This Show

Alone in her Hollywood mansion with little more than celluloid memories, former silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond remains what she has always been: the greatest star of all. For Broadway Center Stage, Tony-winning powerhouse Stephanie J. Block takes on the iconic role. Based on the 1950 film noir, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony-winning masterpiece weaves a compelling tale of romance, obsession, and faded glory.

Block is joined by Tony Award® nominee Derek Klena as Joe Gillis, Auli’i Cravalho as Betty Schaefer, and internationally renowned Grammy Award-winning baritone Nathan Gunn as Max von Mayerling.
