Great to hear that haunting score again. It's a tough show to pull off as so much is required, or even demanded by the audience as far as sets. Musical Theatre West did an impressive job of creating Norma Desmond's mansion on stage. More then...continued

Amazing revival of a classic. It's been almost 20 yrs since Sunset had its last professional tour and this revival was better vocally than the original. The house was full and there wasn't a restless moment in the entire evening. Great theater.

Had seen it before , not quite as well done as the previous productions.
Actually I thought the male lead better than the female. However, it was
certainly worth a view. This show is a winner it itself & the production was as professional as...continued

Seats were better than expected....center, Row R...a little further back than we normally sit at the Carpenter but this was a sold out and last performance of Sunset Blvd. The show was outstanding.

One of the few major ALW musicals I had not previously seen was well executed with a great film noir/Hollywood gothic story

Excellent job by everyone involved. top-notch acting & singing by leads & chorus. Good use of space, lots of Hollywood action, etc. Wish they had left Betty a blonde, her dark wig was a bit much. Also noticed that the sets & costumes were rented...continued
