About Sunset Boulevard’s Lyricists and Score CreatorsSunset Boulevard was based upon the 1950s movie. It took the creative energies of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Christopher Hampton and Don Black to create the musical that we all have grown to love. Webber is famous for musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat and School of Rock. Webber wrote the musical score. Webber actually had been wanting to create a musical version of Sunset Boulevard since the 1970s and had even thought of some compositions to use with the musical. It was not until 1989 that he would get to begin composing the score, bringing Black and Hampton on to write the accompanying lyrics. Black has written lyrics for other Broadway hits such as Bonnie & Clyde, Dracula, The Musical and Bombay Dreams. Hampton was the Playwright for 2009s The Philanropist and helped with the lyrics for Dracula, The Musical alongside Black. Black and Hampton wrote the book and the lyrics for Sunset Boulevard.

What is the plot of Sunset Boulevard?The hit musical Sunset Boulevard takes us back to a time when the movie industry was going through major changes. As silent movies gave way to ones with sound, actors and actresses were left behind, unable to make the leap to this new filming style or cast away as has-beens by the Hollywood community. Sunset Boulevard tells the story of Norma Desmond, a silent movie star longing to get back on the big screen once more. She holds on to the idea she has glamour and pizazz that makes her a natural on-screen, but she is the only one who still believes this. She considers herself the best actress there is and thinks actresses who must use sound to convey feelings are inferior. When she meets Joe Gillis, a struggling screenwriter in Hollywood, Desmond sees her chance to reclaim fame. Instead, a whirlwind romance and ultimate tragedy ensue.
