A magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition.  Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of “talkies”.  When she meets struggling Hollywood screen-writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstnces, their volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.  Extravagant, spectacular, witty and genuinely poetic – this is Lloyd Webber at his most lushly melodic!  Winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
