Did you know Andrew Lloyd Webber was not the first famous composer to consider turning Sunset Boulevard into a musical? Join host Michael Riedel in a rarified, behind-the-curtain conversation with legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber as he recounts the decision to hire Patti LuPone to star as Norma Desmond in the London production of Sunset Boulevard and how the decision to bring the musical to Los Angeles before Broadway ignited one of the biggest feuds in Broadway history.

This episode features excerpts from Michael Riedel’s interview with Andrew Lloyd Webber for his 2020 best-selling book Singular Sensation: The Triumph of Broadway. Early access to the latest episodes is available exclusively through http://bpn.fm/singularsensation.
