The Jamie Lloyd Company, alongside Michael Harrison for Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, has announced that Nicole Scherzinger will star as Norma Desmond in a brand new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s multi-award-winning musical, SUNSET BOULEVARD, which will open at the Savoy Theatre in London’s West End in September 2023 for a strictly limited 16-week season. Tickets go on sale in June 2023.
With book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, based on the Billy Wilder film, this bold new vision of the musical, directed by Jamie Lloyd, will mark the first production presented by Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, the new joint venture by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Harrison.
Dates and further casting to be announced.
This thrillingly atmospheric musical, which features an iconic score including the songs With One Look, The Perfect Year and As If We Never Said Goodbye, is reimagined by visionary director Jamie Lloyd for a new generation.
Haunted by her memories and dreams, movie star Norma Desmond (Scherzinger) yearns to return to the big screen. A struggling screenwriter who can’t sell his scripts to the Hollywood studios may be her only hope, until their dangerous and compelling relationship leads to disastrous circumstances.
Drenched in champagne and cynicism, SUNSET BOULEVARD scrutinises the ambitions and frustrations of its characters and their intoxicating need for fame and adoration.
The Jamie Lloyd Company production of SUNSET BOULEVARD is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Michael Harrison for Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, Gavin Kalin Productions and Wessex Grove.
SUNSET BOULEVARD is produced by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd and is based on the original Paramount film by Billy Wilder.
