When, under dramatic circumstances, she meets a slightly untalented young scriptwriter Joe Gillis, she falls in love with him and starts to believe that he is the one who would help her come back on the silver screen. However, in the shiny “dream factory” of Hollywood, full of false glamour and glitter, the seeming sincerity and smiles are just cover-ups for hypocrisy and ingratitude. The musical is staged on the occasion of the jubilee of Stanislava Topinková Fořtová who acts in the main role as Norma Desmond.
Premiere on 4 December 2021, DJKT – New Scene
