First opening in the West End in 1993 and on Broadway in 1994, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical “Sunset Boulevard” originally received mixed reviews, but in my opinion still remains one of his finest musicals. Well, it was recently back, although in a concert version with a very short run at the London Coliseum, with Glenn Close reprising the role of Norma Desmond, the role which was not only her Broadway debut and a role she definitely made her own, but also won her a clutch of awards including the Tony for Best Actress in a Musical. This production possesses two prominent elements that have made this one of the year’s biggest and most anticipated theatrical events, the performance of the aforementioned Glenn Close, and also the 48 piece orchestra who are on stage too.Sunset Boulevard is a musical based on the classic 1950 Billy Wilder film; the story of old and forgotten silent-movie superstar Norma Desmond planning her “return”. A down-on-his-luck script writer, Joe Gillis, crashes his car into the driveway of her huge mansion and, Ms Desmond uses this as the perfect opportunity by demanding he rewrite a truly awful script she believes will make her famous again. With Joe moving into her mansion to start work, she slowly starts to erase his connections with his former life, and emotionally blackmails him into starting a relationship with her. Her ever growing madness and obsession ultimately leads to a tragic end.I have been lucky enough to see 3 leading ladies in the musical, my first was Glenn Close on Broadway in 1994, then Elaine Paige in 1995 and Petula Clarke in ’96, both in the West End. Many people have their favourites but for me, Glenn Close cannot be bettered. It was a thrill watching her perform again and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s pleasing and often thrilling score has never sounded better. A couple of genuinely stand-out moments were her two big numbers, ‘With One Look’ and ‘As If We Never Said Goodbye’, for which she received well deserved cheers and thunderous applause.Michael Xavier was fantastic as Joe Gillis, and I have to say of all the numbers he had to sing, the title song at the opening of Act Two was definitely his finest moment, superb. Other cast members included Fred Johanson, who was terrific as Max, the long-suffering yet deeply caring and protective former director and former husband of Norma Desmond, and Siobhan Dillion who played aspiring screenwriter and Joe’s love interest, Betty Shaefer. It has to be said, Xavier and Dillion make a perfect pairing and their song ‘Too Much In Love To Care’ has never sounded better.With fabulous costumes, stunning singing and some haunting and evocative projections, this production easily deserved the standing ovation and rapturous applause it received.In a word………..BRILLIANT
