Based on the 1950s film noir classic of the same name, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical Sunset Boulevard opened on London's West End in 1993 to massive commercial and critical acclaim. The story follows Norma Desmond, an aging leading lady from the silent era of cinema, as she tries to make a comeback on the big screen. Romance and tragedy unfold as the delusional Norma vies for a role as a 16-year-old seductress and the affections of an opportunistic screenwriter, until she inevitably snaps and speaks the immortal phrase, "And now, Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close-up."
