Nicole Scherzinger will bring her “unmistakably triumphant” (Telegraph
) performance as ‘Norma Desmond’ to Broadway this year in director Jamie Lloyd’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard
. The production was hailed as London’s 2023 “best show of the year” (Time Out
) and features book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, based on the Billy Wilder film.
Joining Scherzinger on Broadway will be her acclaimed London co-stars: Tom Francis as ‘Joe Gillis’, Grace Hodgett-Young as ‘Betty Schaefer,’ and Olivier Award® winner David Thaxton as ‘Max Von Mayerling.’
Haunted by her memories and dreams, movie star Norma Desmond (Scherzinger) yearns to return to the big screen. A struggling screenwriter (Francis) who can’t sell his scripts to the Hollywood studios may be her only hope, until their dangerous and compelling relationship leads to disastrous circumstances. Drenched in champagne and cynicism, Sunset Boulevard scrutinizes the ambitions and frustrations of its characters and their intoxicating need for fame and adoration.
