Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning masterwork SUNSET BOULEVARD is the story of dreams and desire in the early days of Hollywood! In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screenwriter, Joe Gillis, stumbles into her reclusive domain and is persuaded to work on her film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras. He is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Entrapped in a claustrophobic existence, his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.
