Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard's West End run is being extended.

The musical first premiered in the West End in 1993, before touring worldwide and returning last December at the Comedy Theatre, where its run has now been extended from June 29th to September 26th.

Based on Billy Wilder's 1950 classic film of the same name, the West End production is directed and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood. The musical was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber with book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton and tells the story of "Norma Desmond, a faded star of the silent screen era, living in the past in her decaying mansion on the fabled Los Angeles street. When young struggling screenwriter Joe Gillis accidentally crosses her path, she sees in him an opportunity to make her comeback to the big screen. Romance and tragedy follow…."

Tickets range from £20 to £75 (depending on seating)and are on sale now. Also, a special offer is currently on, with tickets for all Monday to Friday evening, and Saturday matinee performances, being reduced from £54 to£35.
