Based on Billy Wilder’s original film, Glenn Close takes on the role of Norma Desmond in the production of Sunset Boulevard. Desmond is a faded movie star, with dreams of rising to the top once again when she happens across Joe Gillis, a poor screenwriter. As he helps her to work on a film script, he falls into a world of love and danger as he becomes trapped in her world, unable to leave. With music from Andrew Lloyd Webber and a partnership with the English National Opera, this musical is set to do its history proud. Originating back to the Adelphi Theatre in 1993, where it remained there for four years playing to over two million people, and began on Broadway in 1994 with a $37.5 million advance, it is a show that is set to wow.
