Catch Sunset Boulevard at Moonlight Amphitheatre through September 2nd

Moonlight Stage Productions continues its 37th season with the San Diego Regional Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterful homage to the golden age of Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard, Aug. 16 – Sept. 2, at the Moonlight Amphitheatre. Capturing Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical, the show is based on Billy Wilder’s classic 1950 film noir which featured such highly quoted lines as “I am big. It’s the pictures that got small” and “I’m ready for my close up.”

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” a film script she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, Joe is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Eventually, Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.

“It’s every producer’s dream to put Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard on to their stage,” said Producing Artistic Director Steven Glaudini. “Full productions of this masterpiece are rare due to the size and number of sets and locations within the musical, the large number of musicians required to play the lush orchestrations, not to mention needing a leading actress with the acting and singing chops to give Norma her proper moments in the spotlight. Luckily, we have Valerie Perri, whose acting and singing pedigree are unmatched. Moonlight audiences expect our productions to be big, splashy spectaculars. Sunset Boulevard is sure to please.”

Orchid Warehouse Sale (Vista) $9.50

Thank you Lori F who pointed out this great value to me a couple of weeks ago and again today. South Coast Orchids in Vista held a warehouse sale recently and I read the comments and people were just absolutely thrilled with their purchases. So much so that South Coast decided to hold another sale open to the public. Prices are raised ever so slightly from the last sale but once you get there I'm sure you will be pleased with what they have to offer for the price (9.50 ea + $2.50 for pots). My advice is to bring cash and get there early as their inventory will fly off the shelves. Have a birthday or special occasion to buy for? They have you covered.
