Why See Sunset Boulevard?


With one look, I play every part

North Shore Music Theatre bring Andrew Lloyd Webber's stunning Sunset Boulevard to the stage this fall, starring Alice Ripley as reclusive silent movie star Norma Desmond. Coming full circle, Tony winner Ripley's connection to the piece goes back to the shows first Broadway run in 1994, where she originated the role of Betty. 

Sweeping and thrilling, 'Sunset takes us back to the golden age of Hollywood where faded icon Norma Desmond luxuriates in obscurity after the invention of 'Talkies' leaves her outmoded. Desperate for a comeback, she 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 life. When Joe loses his heart to budding Betty, Norma sees her chance slipping away and decides to act - with tragic consequences.

Set to Lloyd Webber's best score with music and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton and based in turn on Billy Wilder's 1950 film of the same name, Sunset Boulevard has truly established itself as a modern classic. With its own movie adaptation in the works, there is no better time to treat yourself to this dreamy epic.
