Dickson Hughes and Richard Stapley, two young songwriters and romantic partners, find themselves caught in movie star Gloria Swanson’s web when she hires them to write a musical version of Sunset Boulevard. Life imitates art when Gloria falls for Richard, and the men find themselves living a real-life version of the classic film.
From the dark alleys of LA to the desert nirvana of Palm Springs, to the posh New York theatre world, Boulevard! A Hollywood Story is the tale of three individuals who attempt to share a melody with all those people out there in the dark… and how the music of that moment defined the rest of their lives.
Don’t miss a chance to revisit Sunset Boulevard on the big screen on Wednesday at 13:30 in Pálás 1.
