Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning masterwork comes to life to dazzle and awe. Based on the hit film, this stunning score brings the tragic Norma Desmond to life as she stages her comeback. With the help of down-and-out screenwriter, Joe Gillis, the stage is set for romance, jealousy, mystery, and tragedy. With huge hit songs like “With One Look” and “As if We Never Said Goodbye.” Sunset Boulevard is ready for its closeup!

We are so excited to announce that the captivating Elizabeth Ward Land will appear with the Mac-Haydn Theatre for the first time in the groundbreaking role of Norma Desmond. Elizabeth is a veteran of the stage and screen with numerous appearances on and off Broadway, on National Tours and on Film and Television. We are honored to have her with us this season and can’t wait to see her bring this remarkable character to life.

Also making his debut with us is James Zannelli in the pivotal role of Max Von Mayerling. James has numerous regional and touring credits and was featured as the Bishop of Digne in the 25th Anniversary Touring Production of Les Misérables. His powerful intensity will bring a magnificent dynamic to our production.
