Tiny Theatre Presents: Sunset Boulevard

Sunday, November 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded, silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy world. When impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive domain he is persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” a screenplay that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras. Seduced by Norma and her luxurious lifestyle, he finds himself trapped in her clutches until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with shattering consequences.

This Tony Award-winning masterpiece of obsession, romance and the golden age of Hollywood stars one of the most celebrated leading ladies of Chicago theatre: Hollis Resnik, making her Porchlight Music Theatre Mainstage debut. Musical Adaptation by Andrew Lloyd Weber; based on film by Billy Wilder and Directed by Michael Weber.

Following the play, members and guests are invited to attend a self-hosted dinner (restaurant to be determined).

What is Tiny Theatre?
Started in 2011 by Village members and theatre enthusiasts Bobbe Wolf and Myrna Knepler, Tiny Theatre offers members and their guests the opportunity to see unique plays in smaller venues of less than 250 seats. By focusing on venues like Chicago’s storefront and church theatres, audiences have the opportunity to see new and exciting work that may expand their horizons with unusual and unexpected offerings. Members are then invited to enjoy a self-hosted dinner after the play, discussing the work and catching up with friends new and old. Tiny Theatre takes place every other month, and the plays continue to be selected and organized by Tiny Theatre ambassador, Bobbe Wolf.
Please note: every venue that is selected for Tiny Theatre offers accessible seating. If needed, be sure to indicate your request for accessible seating when purchasing your tickets.
