In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style.  Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.

A story of romance and obsession, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award Sunset Boulevard is one of the all-time great musicals which includes As If We Never Said Goodbye, The Greatest Star Of All and titular Sunset Boulevard.
