It’s a story of romance and obsession based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film, with Don Black and Christopher Hampton’s book and lyrics.

Ria Jones stars as faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond, who seduces poor screen writer Joe Gillis into her reclusive world. He’s persuaded to work on her masterpiece, a film script she believes will put her back in front of the cameras. His love for another woman leads him to try to break free - with dramatic consequences.

Internationally acclaimed musical theatre actress Jones received standing ovations every night when performing the role at the London Coliseum. The score includes With One Look, The Greatest Star of All and The Perfect Year.

The Curve production runs next March 5-10. Tickets go on sale from 9.30am.

There is 10% off tickets for the Monday to Thursday performances until 5pm on June 30.
