In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. When young screenwriter Joe Gillis crosses her path, she sees in him an opportunity to make her return to the big screen. Being “aged out” of Hollywood, Norma teeters in between the past and the present, retracting into her own reality to keep her fame, passion and purpose alive. Persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” Joe is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle and becomes dangerously entrapped in a claustrophobic existence until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning masterwork of dreams and desire in Hollywood includes the lush, swelling standards “With One Look,” and “As If We Never Said Goodbye.” Starring Raleigh’s own Lauren Kennedy, in the show that gave her Broadway debut.
