Why See Sunset Boulevard?
Sunset Boulevard Under the stars!
Moonlight Amphitheatre invites you to an evening of Hollywood noir, combined with the magic of Broadway, in their production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic Tony-winning smash hit. Forming part of their Broadway Under The Stars season, you will be taken back to the era of old movies, where an enigmatic and aging actress desires nothing more than to relive her glory days on the silent silver screen. This age-old favourite, based on the Billy Wilder film features timeless classics such as With One Look, The Greatest Star of All, and of course, the emotionally charged Sunset Boulevard.
Silent movie star Norma Desmond has locked herself away from the public gaze after the advent of "talkies", believing herself to still be a huge star but also desperate for one last stab at immortal glory. In enters the naive and sturggling screenwriter Joe Gillis, who is taken with the volatile Norma whilst on the run from repo men. Norma has written a rambling script for a new movie, Salome, which she believes will restore her to her former adulation. However, Joe realises that it needs work, and agrees to re-script it in return for room and board.
