About Sunset Boulevard

The greatest star of all is back, as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black, and Christopher Hampton’s Hollywood fable returns to the West End. Nicole Scherzinger inhabits the much-coveted role of Norma Desmond, the faded silent screen actress. Make sure you’re ready for her close-up: Book Sunset Boulevard tickets on London Theatre.

Sunset Boulevard premiered in London in 1993, adapted from the 1950 Billy Wilder film noir of the same name. It starred Patti LuPone as Norma, who was a star in silent movies, but is now forgotten and living alone in a crumbling mansion. She hires struggling young screenwriter Joe Gillis to develop the script for her comeback, but their arrangement descends into acrimony, jealousy and murder.

The fabulous role of deluded diva Norma in the Sunset Boulevard musical has proved a gift to actresses over the years. Following LuPone, Glenn Close played the role on Broadway (and reprised it in the West End and on Broadway in 2016-17). Ria Jones, Mazz Murray, and Stephanie J. Block have all played her.

Now, it’s Nicole Scherzinger’s turn. She rose to fame as the lead singer of sultry group The Pussycat Dolls and has subsequently appeared on reality competition shows like Dancing with the Stars, The X Factor, and The Masked Singer.

She has musical theatre prowess, too: In 2014, she starred as Grizabella in the West End revival of Cats, belting out its most famous song, “Memory,” and earning an Olivier Award nomination. In 2021, Scherzinger played Grace Farrell in Annie Live! on NBC. Most recently, she performed “Reflection” from Disney’s Mulan at the Coronation Concert.

Scherzinger leads this exciting new Sunset Boulevard London revival, helmed by Jamie Lloyd – who just directed Jessica Chastain in A Doll’s House on Broadway. His previous hit shows, in London and New York, include Cyrano de Bergerac with James McAvoy, Betrayal with Tom Hiddleston, and The Seagull with Indira Varma and Emilia Clarke.

This much-anticipated production plays a strictly limited run this autumn at the Savoy Theatre. Join Norma Desmond in Hollywood, and see Scherzinger take the spotlight.
