Sunset Blvd is up there with Merrily We Roll Along and Follies as one of my favorite musicals. I’m totally thrilled and totally looking forward to seeing it at Signature this weekend.
Also, talk about great press! Signature landed an interview with Florence Lacey, star of Sunset, in this week’s Diva Talk column in Playbill online: ““I knew it would be fun, but it’s also very difficult. Also, on a serious note,” she adds, “it really is a very challenging, emotional place to play. Vocally, it still really suits me, even though I am of a certain age. [Laughs.] It still does really suit my voice, so it’s not that terribly difficult to sing, but the emotions of it are very challenging.””
