Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning masterpiece Sunset Boulevard, directed by Nikolai Foster and starring Ria Jones as Norma Desmond, will be coming to a venue near you.

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 and is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes trapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free, with dramatic consequences.

With internationally acclaimed musical theatre star Ria Jones, who received standing ovations every night when performing the role at the London Coliseum, and its much-loved score (including Sunset Boulevard, With One Look, The Greatest Star of All and The Perfect Year) performed with full orchestra, this ‘majestic, mesmerizing and teasingly seductive!‘ (The Evening Standard) production promises to be a spectacular evening.
