Sunset Boulevard

Alex Parker is thrilled to return to the Yvonne Arnaud to present a brand new production of Sunset Boulevard; the seven Tony Award-winning musical based on Billy Wilder’s Academy Award-winning film of the same name.

Norma Desmond, a faded star of the silent screen era, is living in the past in her decaying mansion on the fabled Los Angeles street. When young screenwriter Joe Gillis accidentally crosses her path, Norma sees the chance encounter as an excellent opportunity to make her comeback to the big screen.

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, Sunset Boulevard includes hit songs such as With One Look, As if We Never Said Goodbye and Sunset Boulevard.

Brought to Guildford by the critically acclaimed creative team behind the West End première of Stephen Sondheim's Putting It Together and the recent concert production of A Little Night Music, Sunset Boulevard features a 24-strong cast and a 17-piece orchestra.
