Silent movie star Norma Desmond yearns for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by Tinseltown with the advent of "talkies." Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screenwriter Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion. Set to Lloyd Webber's masterful score, with book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Guest, and featuring songs like "With One Look," "The Greatest Star of All," "As If We Never Said Good-bye," and, of course, "Sunset Boulevard," this classic of American musical theatre weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition.
"...Sunset Boulevard has become a celebration of the outsized glory of Hollywood." --Robert Feldberg, "The Record"
