Danny Mac is to star as Joe Gillis in the forthcoming UK and Ireland tour of The Curve Theatre, Leicester‘s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning musical Sunset Boulevard. For more information, see the accompanying news article.
Sunset Boulevard will open at The Curve Theatre on Saturday 16 September 2017 before touring the UK and Ireland. Ria Jones is to play Norma Desmond and the show is to be directed by Nikolai Foster. Further casting will be announced shortly.
Most recently Danny Mac captured the nation’s hearts during his time on BBC1’s “Strictly Come Dancing” – this month he stars as Gabey in On The Town at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
A compelling story of romance and obsession, Sunset Boulevard centres around the relationship between faded silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, and impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis. On the run from debt collectors, Joe stumbles into Norma’s reclusive world and is persuaded to work on her ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras. Effortlessly seduced by the 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.
