Synopsis

Share:

Our critically acclaimed Made at Curve streamed production of Sunset Boulevard – at Home will once again be available to watch online, with all money raised in support of The Andy Nairn Bursaries in Technical Theatre.

We’re thrilled to be re-revisiting our award-winning Made at Curve production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard in this captivating performance hailed as a ‘game changer’ by The Telegraph, recorded and streamed for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Set over a turbulent New Year’s Eve in 1940s Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession. Directed by Nikolai Foster, the performance will see Ria Jones reprise her role as silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond, with Danny Mac returning as penniless screen writer Joe Gillis. Molly Lynch as Betty Schaefer, Adam Pearce as Max Von Mayerling, Dougie Carter as Artie Green and Carl Sanderson as Cecil B DeMille.

A 16-piece orchestra – supported by music licensing company PPL, will also join the sumptuously costumed cast in realising Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s epic and globally-adored score, including Sunset Boulevard, The Greatest Star Of All and As If We Never Said Goodbye.

Awards for our 2017 production:
WINNER – Best Regional Production, WhatsOnStage Awards 2018
WINNER – Best Musical, Manchester Theatre Awards 2018
WINNER – Best Actor – Danny Mac, Manchester Theatre Awards 2018

All money raised from ticket sales and donations for the upcoming week-long run of the musical will go towards The Andy Nairn Bursaries in Technical Theatre, which was created by Curve, Derby Theatre and Nottingham Playhouse in honour of Andy’s contribution to theatre in the region and passion for mentoring. The scheme will support aspiring theatre technicians from low socio-economic and diverse backgrounds in the East Midlands, removing barriers to access and providing opportunities to develop their skills.
