Glenn Close‘s Norma Desmond is back.
The actress will reprise her Tony-winning role as a faded silent-film star in London next year in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard, the second musical theatre production in the English National Opera’s partnership with the GradeLinnit Company.
The limited engagement of the musical, for which Close won her third Tony Award in 1995, will open April 1, 2016, and run through May 7. The show originated in London’s West End in 1993 with Patti LuPone in the lead role.
Lonny Price, who also helmed the partnership’s first production, Sweeney Todd, will direct the revival. That March 2015 hit run of the Stephen Sondheim–Hugh Wheeler musical starred Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel.
Further casting for Sunset Boulevard will be announced at a later date.
