Nicole Scherzinger as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard

A cast recording of Jamie Lloyd’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard has been confirmed for release!

Starring two-time Olivier Award and GRAMMY Award nominee Nicole Scherzinger, the album – recorded live at the Savoy Theatre during the musical’s West End run – will be released in October.

The release will coincide with the show’s Broadway transfer, playing New York’s St. James Theatre (246 West 44th Street) with preview performances beginning Saturday, September 28 ahead of a Sunday, October 20 opening night.

The production, which features book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, based on the Paramount Pictures film directed by Billy Wilder, recently received 11 Olivier Award nominations.

Starting Tuesday, April 2, anyone who orders tickets as part of the Broadway presale will have the option of pre-ordering the album on vinyl and CD.

Additionally, audience members who purchased tickets for the London run of Sunset Boulevard or signed up on the show’s website will be able to pre-order the album at the same time. Starting Friday, April 10, the album will be available for pre-order globally.

Joining Scherzinger on Broadway will be her acclaimed London co-stars, all of whom received Olivier Award nominations for their performances, Tom Francis as ‘Joe Gillis,’ Grace Hodgett-Young as ‘Betty Schaefer,’ and Olivier Award winner David Thaxton as ‘Max Von Mayerling.’
