GOSSIP: ENO want to stage Sunset Boulevard?

According to The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, Andrew Lloyd Webber's show Sunset Boulevard could become the next musical to be staged at the London Coliseum by the English National Opera. 

Bamigboye suggests that the musical could be revived at some point in 2016 or 2017, but stresses that no deals have been made and the ENO are yet to secure the rights.

Producers apparently have Glenn Close "in mind" to star as Norma Desmond. The role was created by Patti LuPone in the original production which opened at the West End's Adelphi Theatre in 1993. Close played Norma Desmond in the original Los Angeles production in 1993 before reprising her performance on  Broadway the following year.

The ENO recently staged their first musical, a production of Sweeney Todd starring Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel.
