In a 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.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning masterwork of dreams and desire in the land called Hollywood includes lush, swelling standards "With One Look," "As If We Never Said Goodbye" and "Perfect Year."
