Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum – 1st April to 7th May 2016

close

Musical theatre stars Michael Xavier, Siobhan Dillon and Fred Johanson join multi award-winning actress Glenn Close in her West End debut in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical Sunset Boulevard.

Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession, based on Billy Wilder’s classic film, with  book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton.

When impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis stumbles into the reclusive world of faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond, she sees the opportunity to make a comeback and rise to her former glory. He by turn is seduced by the actress and her luxurious lifestyle.  But the entanglement between the pair is to have dramatic and tragic consequences.

With the melodies of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much-loved score (including Sunset Boulevard, With One Look and The Perfect Year) performed by ENO’s acclaimed orchestra, this semi-staged production promises to be a spectacular evening.

Lonny Price (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) returns to the London Coliseum to direct the strictly limited run of 43 performances.
