RTOP’s ‘Sunset Boulevard’ opens Thursday in Pullman

Pullman’s Regional Theatre of the Palouse returns to live theater tonight with its production of “Sunset Boulevard.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning play, based on Billy Wilder’s film noir screenplay, premiered in London’s West End in 1993 and ran for almost four years, according to a news release.

It tells the story of impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis who is seduced by faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond.

The Pullman production opens at 7:30 Thursday (Sept. 30) and runs at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Sunday (Oct. 1-3) and Oct. 7, 8 and 9; and at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Oct. 9 and 10 at 122 N Grand Ave.
