Sunset Boulevard in London

Starring:

Nicole Scherzinger

With Nicole Scherzinger in the starring role, audiences are in for a very special experience. The original movie was a huge hit and it's still loved to this day. It was nominated for an impressive eleven Academy Awards and won three. Some say it's one of the finest examples of American cinema. And it's yours, playing at the Savoy Theatre from September 2023.

You're looking at a classic story so good that the film is considered one of USA's most “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant", included in the National Film Registry's 100 best American 20th Century films. The stage production is just as powerful, an unforgettable black comedy of a plot full of violence, madness and death.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's lovely music sits at the heart of the world’s best known musicals: Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and The Phantom of the Opera amongst many others. He's a great British institution in the flesh, and theatregoers are dying to experience the show. But there's more. The entire English National opera orchestra provides the music. Wow.

Sunset Boulevard – The story

Norma Desmond is a reclusive ex-silent movie star. She can feel her stardom slipping away as her reputation fades along with her looks. Joe Gillis is a dodgy screenwriter on the run from debtors. When they collide, sparks fly.

Norma hires Joe to work on a screenplay she's written, something she believes will shoot her back to stardom in the talkies. Joe has different ideas – he thinks it's a fantasy. But he smells money, and he wants it. At first they get on... very well. But they're soon at loggerheads as they both refuse to let go of their desires, Joe falls in love with someone else and he and Norma clash violently in an effort to protect their ambitions.

It sounds like a hoot. And it is. But it's also as black as it gets, a thrilling combination audiences love whatever the format, film or stage. Don't miss it!

Enjoyable night

All the actors and actresses were amazing and the singing was the best I’ve heard and the orchestra was amazing but the story line was boring

Reviewed on 28 December 2023 by , Romford, United Kingdom

Not your average musical

The cast and acting was amazing. Nicole and her co-star stole the show. However, the overall storyline and lack of props/costumes (usually the wow factors) made the overall experience boring. You pay to see Nicole. The venue itself was very warm, everyone around us found it hard to breathe from the smoke

Reviewed on 21 December 2023 by , Reading, United Kingdom

High amplification

A far too great dependency on amplifiers for both orchestra as well as the actors. As a result the actors did not feel the need to project their voices and the spoken words were difficult to understand for non English speakers. When the lead character sang at her full volume the sound was overpowering. She would have been impressive without amplifiers, but as it was the decibel level was too much. We left at the interval.

Nicole no show but still a great show

Despite the star, Nicole Scherzinger not being on stage which was the reason I paid £149.50 for an excellent stall seat, which was very disappointing but still the alternative lead, Ms Rachel Tucker have a. rousing performance. The music of ALW as always pitch perfect, Tom Francis gave a sterling performance as did the captivating Grace Hodgett Young. The performance of a young Norma by Hannah Yun ChemberlIn was graceful and decadent, a true rising star.

Fantastic show

A really great show. Only two issues. Had issues finding the entrance because google maps sends you round the back! Seats in the theatre are not comfortable. All the staff are fantastic, drinks expensive but suppose it’s London but £11 for a standard glass of wine from a bottle that costs £9 in a supermarket is a bit steep. The show was amazing and would recommend it to everyone.

Reviewed on 01 December 2023 by , Leiston, United Kingdom

Creative

I loved some if the ideas I haven't seen before, e.g. using cameras on the stage, this supported the back seats greatly; the tour within the inner corridors of the building, which showed the audience a different view of the atmosphere behind the stage; the tour outside the building was so creative and unexpected, loved it! Just a few actors, and simple costumes, but their acting and especially, Nicole's voice and presence, made the show Big! Already recommended.

Nicole Scherzinger stood out amoung an average cast

I suppose I am biased having seen the original production which had fabulous sets. Whilst I know they were going for the minimalist set I don't think it worked for this show. Sometimes it does, I think Les Mis is worse for having more scenery. I also think there was too much corny slap stick which got laughs from the younger crowd but I prefer the gravity of the original showing in the 90s. The orchestra was amazing and I was spellbound by the quality of Nicole Scherzinger's voice. However, I felt Tom Frances who played Joe needs to be directed to look towards the royal and grand circles when he is singing and not just to the stalls. It was a good performance but I think it was a little too arthouse for me.

Great yet disappointing

Brilliant acting, dancing and singing. Nicole Scherzinger has an exceptional voice and great presence on stage. But the lack of ANY set, scenery or costume is very detrimental to the production. So much is lost in this production compared to when I first saw the show in the West End (with Petula Clark). I was really looking forward to seeing it again. But what a loss. What a shame!

Stripped Down Revival

Didn't think Ms Scherzinger would have the voice for musical theatre given her pop background - but Wow! Amazing vocals, hit all the right notes, and could she sustain them. First half was excellent, second half a bit of a mess and hard to follow. Wasn't keen on the lack of scenery/costumes and the constant playing of pre-recorded video clips. Felt cheap. But wow to Ms Scherzinger - she made the show. Also thought it a little tacky for the leading man to do the curtain call in his underwear and still covered in blood. He could have wiped it off and thrown on a shirt or robe.

You can'ty miss this gem

This is the second time I saw Sunset Boulevard. The first one was 22 years ago in Broadway and this time in London. I can't describe my emotions for seeing Glenn Close again performing at the highest possible level as she did 22 years ago. The story is amazing, the music is fantastic, the lyrics are just so right, and the whole thing is just perfect. This time I went with my husband which is not a particularly musical fan and I told him that if he didn't like this one he would never like musicals. To summarise, he said to me the day after the performance that he woke up in the morning thinking about Glenn Close's fantastic performance and thanking me for having taken him as he literally loved Sunset Boulevard, and he posted it in Facebook!!! Anyway, I am not sure if I will have another chance to see it again somewhere in the world but I am so happy life gave me this chance!!!

Disgusted and unimpressed

Less about the show and more about the experience. Will forever be disillusioned and disgusted with London theatre following the no refund or exchange decision on the Glenn Close no show debacle. Considering the advertising campaign relying on her name and the consequent hiking of prices, sales of these tickets were reliant on people wanting to see this Hollywood actress in this role and being left high and dry. What a lack of Integrity to take people's money whilst someone clearly lines their own pockets. I felt thoroughly conned. Would I have paid £200 to see just anybody....No.

All of the cast can be commended on the their vocal performances & the ENO were just amazing making this a special performance at the Coliseum. Siobhan/Betty & Michael/ Joe were wonderful supporting actors and Fred/Max beautiful operatic voice had me in tears - however you simply cannot top Glenn Close she was born for this role - everyone deserved the standing ovation including the orchestra. I have waited so long to see this performance and to be able to see Glenn deliver an outstanding performance of a life time making me and most of the audience cry will never be forgotten - nor easily topped by anything quite as stunning visually and vocally. If I could go to see every performance I would ...but then I would take some one else's well deserved seat to miss this show. Thank you for a truly unforgettable evening.
