The Jamie Lloyd Company alongside Michael Harrison for Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals announced the new production will be heading to the stage later this year.
It has been announced that Nicole Scherzinger will star as Norma Desmond in the new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard when it heads to the Savoy Theatre from September 2023. Further casting and details of the dates have yet to be confirmed.
Featuring book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton and based on the Billy Wilder film, this new production directed by Jamie Lloyd will play for a strictly limited 16 week run. It also marks 30 years after the original West End production opened and is the first production presented by Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, the new joint venture by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Harrison.
Tickets for the production are set to go on sale in June, with people able to sign up for details of on sale dates and priority booking by visiting:sunsetboulevardwestend.com.
Jamie Lloyd said today, “After our reappraisal of Evita at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park, I’m very excited to rediscover another iconic Lloyd Webber musical — and Sunset Boulevard is one of his most thrilling, complex and atmospheric scores. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to create a new production of this fascinating piece with the extraordinary Nicole Scherzinger.”
2023 also marks The Jamie Lloyd Company’s 10th anniversary – with Sunset Boulevard follows the company’s Tony Award nominated production of A Doll’s House starring Jessica Chastain and Arian Moayed, running at the Hudson Theatre, Broadway until 10 June; and the forthcoming National Theatre production of Lucy Prebble’s The Effect starring Paapa Essiedu and Taylor Russell running in the Lyttleton theatre from 1st August, in association with The Jamie Lloyd Company.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “Nicole is one of the finest singers I have worked with, and I can’t wait to get started on this exciting show with her and the rest of this brilliant team.”
