Photo Coverage: SUNSET BOULEVARD Opens at The John W. Engeman Theater Northport
The John W. Engeman Theater presents SUNSET BOULEVARD. Performances began on Thursday, September 12 and run through Sunday, October 27, 2019.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. In her mansion, faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer Joe Gillis, stumbles into her reclusive world and is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes trapped until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free, with dramatic consequences. With its much-loved score ("Sunset Boulevard," "With One Look," "As If We Never Said Goodbye," "The Greatest Star Of All" and "The Perfect Year") this production promises to be a spectacular event.
