Sunset Boulevard Costumes

All new show from the Thespis studios for the 2020 season

Delusions of grandeur don’t get much bigger than those perceived by the once towering silent movie star Norma Desmond.

Sad though it must be to be left behind by the ever-marching progress of time, quite the fortuitous opportunity it does reveal to the equally lonely, hard-up screenwriter Joe Gillis.

Like so many artists in history, Joe is scrabbling for some kind of success to lift him from his growing debts. Chance often provides the most unexpected encounters, and if you’re really, REALLY lucky - lucrative ones too.

Joe sees potential. An unspoken quid pro quo. A mutual back-scratching so to speak. But with an almighty catch. He must maintain Norma’s illusions, or find himself back committed to his futile drudgery, and eventual destitution. Passion. Paranoia, and a few pistol shots. What could possibly go wrong. You must have come...

... to Sunset Boulevard.

So darling don’t be shy. It’s just L.A. life. But we only dress the best, down on Sunset Boulevard.


"NODA" reviews say it all

Sunset Boulevard is a tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition.

The musical originally premiered in London in 1994 in an iconic production starring Patti LuPone and Kevin Anderson, before opening in LA and Broadway starring Glenn Close. The original production was famed for its extravagant sets as well as its backstage dramas, and it became the hottest ticket of the year, if not the most talked about new musical of the decade.


Sunset Boulevard has four central characters and an expandable ensemble. With a sophisticated subject matter

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Book and Lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton

Based on the Billy Wilder film
