In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive domain. 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 lifestyle. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic existence until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences. Based on one of the most famous classic films, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning masterwork of dreams and desire in the land called Hollywood includes a lush, swelling score including With One Look and As If We Never Said Goodbye.
