When Broadway was first introduced to Norma Desmond in the 1994 Broadway premiere of Sunset Boulevard, it was with Tony winner Glenn Close playing the iconic role (which won her a third Tony). Beloved Broadway divas Betty Buckley and Elaine Paige went on to play the part, but in just a few months it will be "As If We Never Said Goodbye" to Close. She is set to lead the cast of Sunset Boulevard once again when it celebrates its first revival on Broadway in February 2017.
Watch Close perform one of the musical's showstopping ballads at Andrew Lloyd Webber's Royal Albert Hall Celebration in 1999.
