Photos: Sunset Boulevard Opening Night

Norma Desmond was ready for her closeup Thursday, February 9 at Broadway's Palace Thursday as Glenn Close returned to Broadway, reviving her Tony Award winning role as Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber's blockbuster Sunset Boulevard.

 

Theater Pizzazz's JK Clarke and Monica Charline Brown were on hand to photograph first nighters including: Bobby Cannavale, Sara Bareilles, Jane Krakowski, Joel Grey, Mariska Hargitay, Paul Schaffer, Tituss Burgess, Bob Balaban, Laura Osnes, Lena Hall, Sierra Boggess, Lillias White, Rosanna Scotto, Randy Jones, Bryan Batt and Alison Wright.

 

This edition of Sunset Boulevard features cast members Glenn Close, Michael Xavier, Siobhan Dillon, and Fred Johanson. The creative team is: legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black (Book & Lyrics), Christopher Hampton (Book and Lyrics), and Lonny Price (Director).

 

With the Broadway opening of Sunset Boulevard, Andrew Lloyd Webber will have the rare distinction of having four musicals running simultaneously on Broadway: The Phantom of the Opera, School of Rock – The Musical, CATS, and Sunset Boulevard – an accomplishment only achieved previously by Rodgers and Hammerstein.
