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.

I saw Glen Close in Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles and jumped at the chance to see the play again. Awesome job by the cast. Very well done with minimal sets. Clever use of the film version.

I've seen Sunset Boulevard performed by two touring companies prior to this and this production was the best! The performers, the orchestra and the sets were all first-rate! The Carpenter Performing Arts Center is an excellent facility with good...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

A beautiful production with strong performances from the 4 leads; Valerie Perri, David Burnham, Norman Large and Ashley Fox Linton. The large orchestra plays the fantastic orchestrations to perfection. "Sunset Boulevard" hasn't been seen in LA...continued
