STRICTLY COME DANCING STAR DANNY MAC TO STAR AS JOE GILLIS IN THE UK AND IRELAND TOUR OF THE CURVE PRODUCTION OF ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’S SUNSET BOULEVARD

• PRODUCED BY MICHAEL HARRISON AND DAVID IAN AND DIRECTED BY NIKOLAI FOSTER

Michael Harrison and David Ian are delighted to announce that Danny Mac is to star as Joe Gillis in the forthcoming UK and Ireland tour of Curve’s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning musical SUNSET BOULEVARD. Ria Jones is to play Norma Desmond and the show is to be directed by Nikolai Foster.

SUNSET BOULEVARD will open at Curve on Saturday 16th September 2017, before touring the UK and Ireland. Full casting to be announced shortly.

TUESDAY 3 OCTOBER – SATURDAY 7 OCTOBER
EDINBURGH PLAYHOUSE

Most recently Danny Mac captured the nation’s hearts and received overwhelming support during his incredible time on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing making it all the way to the final. This month he stars as Gabey in On The Town at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. His other musical theatre credits include Wicked and Legally Blonde.

One of the all-time great musicals, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award®-winning (Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical) masterpiece SUNSET BOULEVARD is a compelling story of romance and obsession, based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film, with Don Black and Christopher Hampton's wonderful book and lyrics. This much-loved score includes the title number Sunset Boulevard, With One Look, As If We Never Said Goodbye, The Greatest Star Of All and The Perfect Year and will be performed by a full orchestra.

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious life-style. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.
