Sunset Boulevard

by Don Black, Christopher Hampton, and Andrew Lloyd Webber

December 7, 2010 – February 13, 2011


The Washington Premiere of the legendary, Tony Award®-winning Hollywood musical

“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”

This December, legendary silent film star Norma Desmond will be singing the glorious songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber in Signature’s new production of Sunset Boulevard. All the glamour of old-time Hollywood and Paramount Pictures comes alive in this tale of love, lust, and revenge.

Starring Florence Lacey (star of Broadway’s Evita and Signature’s Follies) as the faded screen star, Sunset Boulevard is a noir musical and one of the greatest Hollywood tales ever told. With such stunning songs as “With One Look,” “As If We Never Said Goodbye,” and “Perfect Year,” Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard is a lush romantic tragedy.
