The news of director Jamie Lloyd’s new production of the hit London show — featuring book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton — was announced on Thursday morning (Jan. 4). Joining Scherzinger on Broadway will be her London co-stars, Tom Francis (as Joe Gillis) and Grace Hodgett-Young (as Betty Schaefer), as well as Olivier Award-winner David Thaxton (as Max Von Mayerling).

The musical, based on Billy Wilder’s beloved 1950 Hollywood black comedy of the same name, tells the story of faded silent screen star Desmond, who spends her days in a decrepit L.A. mansion as she harbors dreams of a movie comeback after meeting young screenwriter Gillis.

The musical first opened in London’s West End in 1993 and has played on Broadway several times with a galaxy of stars of stage and screen inhabiting the scenery-chewing title role over the years, including Patti LuPone, Glenn Close, Diahann Carroll and, in 2023, former Pussycat Dolls member Scherzinger in the third West End revival of the show; Scherzinger was nominated for an Olivier Award for best supporting actress for her role in a West End production of Lloyd Webber’s Cats in 2015.

At press time, the production dates, theater and additional casting for the 2024 Broadway Sunset Boulevard production had not yet been announced.
