"Sunset Boulevard lights up Minneapolis Musical Theatre"
Featuring music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sunset Boulevard weaves 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 Tinseltown with the advent of ‘talkies.’ Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screen-writer Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.
Watch Director Steven Meerdink discuss some behind-the-scenes insights on Sunset Boulevard.
“The show’s a hit. Lloyd Webber’s most shamefully and artfully constructed score. Radiant.”
