Last night saw the 2016 Evening Standard Theatre Awards take place at the Old Vic Theatre.
We are delighted that Glenn Close won the award for ‘Best Musical Performance’ for her portrayal of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, which was performed at the London Coliseum in April and May this year.
Sunset Boulevard was the second musical produced by ENO in partnership with GradeLinnet (the first being Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street in 2015) and featured ENO’s award-winning orchestra performing centre stage.
The production received multiple 5 star reviews with over 89,000 people attending the 43 performances. Glenn will be reprising her role as Norma Desmond on Broadway in February 2017. The next ENO musical in partnership with GradeLinnet will be announced in the coming weeks.
