Sunset Boulevard

16 - 20 January 2018

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award®-winning (Best Musical, Best Original Score & Best Book of a Musical) masterpiece Sunset Boulevard, directed by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster and starring Ria Jones as Norma Desmond, comes to Mayflower Theatre for one week only.

One of the all-time great musicals, Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession, based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film, with Don Black and Christopher Hampton's wonderful book and lyrics.

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free, with dramatic consequences.

With internationally acclaimed musical theatre star Ria Jones, who received standing ovations every night when performing the role at the London Coliseum, and its much-loved score (including Sunset Boulevard, With One Look, The Greatest Star Of All and The Perfect Year) performed with full orchestra, this “MAJESTIC, MESMERIZING AND TEASINGLY SEDUCTIVE!” (The Evening Standard) production promises to be a spectacular evening.
