STAGE TUBE: Solos from Arvada's SUNSET BOULEVARD
Arvada Center presents the Denver debut of SUNSET BOULEVARD featuring Broadway veterans Ann Crumb and Kevin Earley. Performances will run through October 10. Videos were recently released of Crumb and Early singing 'As If We Never Said Goodbye' and 'Sunset Boulevard'.
Based on the Billy Wilder film, SUNSET BOULEVARD is a story is about Norma Desmond, a relic of the early years of filmmaking. When talkies pushed silent films and their stars out of the limelight, Norma locked herself into her mansion with her memories, an ex-husband and a chimp as her only companions. Twenty years later, when disillusioned screenwriter Joe Gillis stumbles within her reach, Norma sees in him an opportunity to make her "return" to the big screen.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical score is stunning and romantic making this the perfect opening act to the 2010-2011 season at Avarda.
Ann Crumb was a member of the original Broadway cast of LES MISERABLES. She also appeared in CHESS and Anna KarenINA, for which she was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical. Earley's Broadway credits include LES MISERABLES, A TALE OF TWO CITIES and THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE.
