Katie Ladner (Class of 2013) Makes her Broadway Debut in Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close
This February, Katie Ladner (Class of 2013) will make her Broadway debut in Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close, Michael Xavier, Siobhan Dillon and Fred Johanson.
Performances will begin on February 2 at the Palace Theatre, where the musical will open officially on February 9 and play a limited 16-week engagement. The semi-staged production, under the direction of Lonny Price, will feature a 40-piece orchestra.
Based on the 1950 Billy Wilder film of the same name and featuring a score by Lloyd Webber and a book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black, the show follows Norma Desmond (Close), a faded silent film star who seduces Joe Gillis (Xavier), a struggling screenwriter, into working on the film she believes will put her back into the spotlight.
