Curve Leicester Theatre will stream Sunset Boulevard this December.
The show had a planned run 18 December 2020 to 9 January 2021, which has been cancelled because of the current restrictions.
Ria Jones is to play Norma Desmond with Danny Mac as Joe Gillis will reprise their roles in Sunset Boulevard joining a host of original company members from Curve’s award-winning 2017 touring production. Molly Lynch will reprise her role as Betty Schaefer, Adam Pearce returns as Max Von Mayerling, Dougie Carter as Artie Green and Carl Sanderson as Cecil B DeMille.

Set over a turbulent New Year’s Eve in 1940s Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard is a gripping tale of romance, glamour and obsession. Curve’s Artistic Director Nikolai Foster will once again direct this production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece, which features book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton and is based on the 1950 film by Billy Wilder.
The production will be available between Tuesday 22 December and Saturday 9 January (tickets will cost from £20) and there will be up to three different performance times daily. The streamed version will be available for audiences in the UK and all territories across the world, with the exception of North America. Tickets are on sale now via the Curve's website.
