Christine Sherrill and Will Ray are both outstanding. Dara Cameron was very fine... great voices... and then ....Don Richard over played ...

Good casting, directing, acting, music, staging, and costuming. All very accomplised actors and actresses. I was just a little disappointed at times with Christine Sherill's (Norma) singing. However, in her defense, some of the songs were very...continued

The performance was very good; the play, itself, kind of dated. I should have known better, but I was curious. It was unsettling listening to dialog sung instead of spoken.

Sunset BOULevard! What can I say? They did a great job with this film noir-turned musical. The leads all sang beautifully and they sounded great in Drury Lane's theater.

Fine retelling of the Norma Desmond story. Loved the operatic voices, and thought the sets were tremendously creative, especially the headlines and film montages. But the star of the show, of course, was that gorgeous car!

Good production with great actors. I've been to countless musicals and thought the acting was some of the best I've seen in a smaller theater. The lead actress was phenomenal. I didn't really care for the music, though. It just wasn't very catchy...continued

I guess i really didnt know much about this play except that it was famous. I thought it moved kind of slow and i didnt like that every word was sung (except for a few lines) the acting and singing was really good though!

The production was very well done, but the story line itself is very dark - so I can't say I loved it.

venue is old and old school, overdecorated, dated and tired - the performance was good, the voices very powerful. Direction was as bombastic as the materical required - the show is classic Andrew Lloyd Webber - the music is kind of derivative of...continued

Drury Lane's musicals are always packed with talent, and they are therefore worth seeing. Sunset Boulevard, which I had never seen before except for the original film noir movie, from which this musical is derived, is quite a dark story, and...continued

I didn't realize the play was a musical until I was at the theater. Having seen the movie, I didn't really care for it as a musical. Acting was superb though!

Not really a score you will be humming the next day, but the performances and production were great. Faithful to the story in the movie.

The actors were all very well cast and very talented. The first act was 1 and 1/2 hours long and very tedious. There were too many songs that were over-produced and unnecessary. The second act was 1 hour long and very enjoyable. On the whole, it...continued

I was a little nervous after reading some mixed reviews but we thoroughly enjoyed this show. For those who are not familiar with the play, this is darker material than Broadway often features and certainly does not have a happy ending but for...continued
