Norma Desmond is taking her stardom back to New York! Today, it was announced that Nicole Scherzinger will lead the new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s critically acclaimed revival of 'Sunset Boulevard,' currently playing in London's West End, which will be transferring to Broadway this year. This will also mark Nicole Scherzinger's Broadway Debut.

With book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, based on the Billy Wilder film, this bold new vision of the musical is directed by Jamie Lloyd

Joining Scherzinger on Broadway will be her acclaimed London co-stars: Tom Francis as ‘Joe Gillis’, Grace Hodgett-Young as ‘Betty Schaefer,’ and Olivier Award® winner David Thaxton as ‘Max Von Mayerling.’

This production was even featured in Theatrely's Best Of 2023.

Nicole Scherzinger stars as the immortal Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary Sunset Boulevard. This thrillingly atmospheric musical, which features an iconic score including the songs With One Look, The Perfect Year and As If We Never Said Goodbye, is reimagined by visionary director Jamie Lloyd for a new generation.

Haunted by her memories and dreams, movie star Norma Desmond (Scherzinger) yearns to return to the big screen. A struggling screenwriter who can’t sell his scripts to the Hollywood studios may be her only hope, until their dangerous and compelling relationship leads to disastrous circumstances. Drenched in champagne and cynicism, Sunset Boulevard scrutinizes the ambitions and frustrations of its characters and their intoxicating need for fame and adoration.

The creative team for Sunset Boulevard includes Soutra Gilmour (set and costume design), Fabian Aloise (choreography), Alan Williams (music supervisor and musical director), Jack Knowles (lighting design), Adam Fisher (sound design), Nathan Amzi and Joe Ransom (video design and cinematography), Jim Carnahan CSA and Jason Thinger CSA (US casting director), and Stuart Burt CDG (UK casting director).

Production dates, theater, and additional casting for Sunset Boulevard on Broadway will be announced shortly.
