This 1995 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is based on the 1950 American film noir and features the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
In Hollywood in 1949, down-on-his-luck screenwriter Joe Gillis encounters Norma Desmond, the one-time silent film star who fell out of popularity when “talkies” took over. The delusional ex-celebrity speaks of a play she’s written to be her next project, and desperate for an opportunity, Joe offers to edit it in exchange for room and board. When Norma falls in love with Joe, he becomes caught between her and the girl he loves, Betty, and an awkward situation becomes complex and dangerous.
