Sunset Boulevard in London

Dear Friends of the London Theater

One of my favorite shows of all-time is Sunset Boulevard.  I originally saw the show in New York City many years ago but the show is now finishing what's left of a very limited 43 performance run at London's Coliseum Theater.

With Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, a Book and Lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton as well as the excellent ENO orchestra, excellent stirring melodies in the show's 3 hugely popular songs by the name of "Sunset Boulevard", "The Perfect Year" and "With One Look", this is a musical that aims to please in every way.

Tony Award winning Glenn Close stars in this great piece of London theater.  She plays Norma Desmond, an aging "silent-screen star" who lives in a fantasy world where she is planning for her own "career comeback".  As the story rolls along we witness Norma's tempestuous relationship with down on his luck screenwriter Joe Gillis.  Norma convinces Joe to help work on her "masterpiece", a new film that she truly believes will result in making her a popular movie star once again.  Joe is tempted by living in Norma's wealthy lifestyle and in some ways seduced by it all.  He becomes trapped in her world until another woman catches his eye.  Obviously something that will not sit well with Norma.
