Sunset Boulevard | Kennedy Center
Broadway Center Stage:
Sunset Boulevard (Feb. 1 – 8, 2023)
Alone in her Hollywood mansion with little more than celluloid memories, former silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond remains what she has always been: the greatest star of all. For Broadway Center Stage, Tony®-winning powerhouse Stephanie J. Block (The Cher Show, Falsettos, Wicked) takes on the iconic role. Based on the 1950 film noir, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony-winning masterpiece weaves a compelling tale of romance, obsession, and faded glory.
Block is joined by Tony Award® nominee Derek Klena (Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge! The Musical) as Joe Gillis, Auli‘i Cravalho (Moana, Rise, The Little Mermaid Live!) as Betty Schaefer, and internationally renowned Grammy Award®–winning baritone Nathan Gunn as Max von Mayerling.
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Book and Lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton
Based on the Billy Wilder film
