5 Must-See Shows in New York

‘Sunset Boulevard’

Rejoice, all you little people out there in the dark. The very greatest of screen queens (well, at least according to her) is back on Broadway, dressed to kill in every sense of the term. Glenn Close is reprising the role for which she won a Tony in 1995: the silent screen diva Norma Desmond, in this Andrew Lloyd Webber poperetta adaptation of Billy Wilder’s deepest noir movie about movies. Staged to hosannas in London last year, this latest, streamlined version, directed by Lonny Price, may be lighter on stage spectacle than the original. But rest assured that as channeled by Ms. Close, who is backed by a 40-piece orchestra, Miss Desmond’s ego will be as supersize as ever.
