Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Sunset Boulevard’ Hits Broadway with Live Album on the Way

Big news for Broadway and Nicole Scherzinger fans! ‘Sunset Boulevard’ is hitting Broadway with Nicole leading the charge as Norma Desmond, and they’ve just dropped the deets on the live cast recording and show dates. So, the gang got together at the Savoy Theatre in the West End to record the album, and let me tell you, it’s shaping up to be something special.

Mark your calendars, because the show’s taking over the St. James Theatre from September 28, with the grand opening night on October 20. And get this – there’s a cast album on the way, recorded live during the West End run, set to hit shelves globally in October. It’s coming out under The Other Songs label, which is run by Alastair and Billy Webber, yeah, the sons of the musical genius Andrew Lloyd Webber himself.

Nicole’s going to be in some excellent company, with Tom Francis, Grace Hodgett-Young, and David Thaxton (who’s snagged an Olivier Award, by the way) all making their Broadway debuts alongside her. Both Nicole and Grace walked away with WhatsOnStage Awards for their performances, so you know they’re bringing their A-game.

The show’s got Jamie Lloyd directing and Fabian Aloise handling the choreography, plus a killer creative team behind the scenes. This new take on the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, with its dark and twisty story based on Billy Wilder’s film, is already turning heads and snagged a whopping seven WhatsOnStage Awards. We’re talking best direction, performer, debut performance, musical direction, lighting design, sound design, and video design – pretty much a clean sweep.

Critics are loving this version of ‘Sunset Boulevard,’ calling out the sultry and shadowy lighting, the sound design, and the live cinematography that together create a ‘dazzling tapestry of action.’ And with the music sounding like it’s brand new, thanks to Alan Williams, it’s clear this production’s not messing around.

So, yeah, Broadway’s about to get a little brighter with ‘Sunset Boulevard’ in town. Can’t wait to see what Nicole and the crew do with it!
