Why See Sunset Boulevard?
A new sunrise for sunset!
Andrew Lloyd Webber is represented on the West End once more as Jamie Lloyd revives one of his finest; Sunset Boulevard, based on Billy Wilder's 1950 film. Featuring lyrics and book by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, the production stars Nicole Scherzinger as Holywood has-been Norma Desmond. A thrilling portrait of fame, and the lengths some will go to hold onto it, it includes powerful tunes including the titular 'Sunset Boulevard', 'As If We Never Said Goodbye', 'With One Look' and 'The Perfect Year'.
Speaking of the new revival, Jamie Lloyd stoked excitement, commenting "I'm very excited to rediscover another iconic Lloyd Webber musical and Sunset Boulevard is one of his most thrilling, complex and atmospheric scores. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to create a new production of this fascinating piece with the extraordinary Nicole Scherzinger." - don't miss your chance to see what he's come up with!
What is the story?
Desperate for a comeback, outmoded Norma Demons enlists the services of wide-eyed screenwriter Joe Gillis, believing he can save her career. But for Joe, helping Norma comes at too heavy a price, despite the wonder of her luxurious lifestyle. When Joe loses his heart to budding writer Betty, Norma sees her chance slipping away and decides to act - with tragic consequences.
