Sunset Boulevard UK Tour

Sunset Boulevard UK and Ireland Tour

Ria Jones will play Norma Desmon in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard UK Tour starting at the Curve Theatre in Leicester in September 2017.

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. 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 life-style. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.

Sunset Boulevard, based on Billy Wilder’s classic film is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s greatest musicals. The Tony Award-winning musical (Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book Of A Musical) with Don Black and Christopher Hampton’s wonderful book and lyrics. This rich, lush score includes songs like With One Look, As If We Never Said Goodbye, The Greatest Star Of All, The Perfect Year and the show’s title song.

The Sunset Boulevard UK Tour will star Ria Jones, who played the role of Norma Desmond at the London Coliseum last year when Glenn Close was indisposed receiving rave reviews for her performance. Sunset Boulevard will be directed by Nikolai Foster, Artistic Director of The Curve.
