“This world’s waited long
enough, I’ve come home at last!” sings Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical re-imagination of the classic film Sunset Boulevard.
On February 2, the show will return to Broadway (at last), with its time-honored tale of an aging starlet attempting to recapture her faded glory by convincing a young writer to help adapt a script for her comeback. The piece first made it to Broadway in 1994, and Glenn Close won a Tony Award for her performance in the lead role. Over 20 years later, she returns for a new revival which won critical raves in London’s West End — trading the lavish sets of the original production for a drastically stripped down version designed to allow both the material and its performers to shine. sunsetboulevardthemusical.com
