Hollis Resnik stars in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning masterpiece.

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. When impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive domain he is persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” a screenplay that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras. Seduced by Norma and her luxurious lifestyle, he finds himself trapped in her clutches until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with shattering consequences. This Tony Award-winning masterpiece of obsession, romance and the golden age of Hollywood stars one of the most celebrated leading ladies of Chicago theatre: Hollis Resnik, making her Porchlight Music Theatre Mainstage debut.
