Photo Flash: Alice Ripley Stars In SUNSET BOULEVARD At North Shore Music Theatre - Meet The Cast!

Meet the cast of SUNSET BOULEVARD at North Shore Music Theatre, which stars Alice Ripley as the fading Hollywood star, Norma Desmond

BWW Review: SUNSET BOULEVARD: Alice Ripley Puts Her Stamp on Norma Desmond

In the annals of musical theater, Norma Desmond is one of those larger than life characters, like Mame Dennis, Dolly Levi, and Eva Peron, who cries out for an actor with a specific and rare combination of skills to play the role. Tony Award-winner Alice Ripley ascends to playing the faded silent-screen star in the North Shore Music Theatre production of SUNSET BOULEVARD, after originating the role of Betty Schaefer in the 1994 original Broadway cast which starred Glenn Close. In so doing, Ripley joins the pantheon of singular talents who have put their personal stamp on the musical iteration of Norma, stepping out of the shadow of the indelible mark Gloria Swanson made on celluloid in Billy Wilder's 1950 film.
