Tony nominated actress Ann Crumb will portray Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical “Sunset Boulevard” at The Media Theatre April 16-May 18. She will once again be directed by Media Music Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Jesse Cline in this production.
“Sunset Boulevard” is Webber’s Tony winning musical based on the classic 1950 Billy Wilder film in which a faded silent movie star believes she has a chance to make a comeback on the silver screen. Time Magazine said the show features “Webber’s most artfully constructed score”.
Ann Crumb recently appeared on The Media Theatre stage to critical acclaim as the Lady of The Lake in Monty Python’s “Spamalot”. She has a long standing working relationship with director Cline and has appeared in his productions of “Master Class”, “Wings”, “Souvenir” and “The Who’s Tommy”.
Ann Crumb was nominated for the Tony Award when she appeared in “Anna Karenina.” She has appeared on almost every regional theatre stage in the Philadelphia region, with her most recent appearance being “Other Desert Cities” at The Walnut Street Theatre. She won a Best Actress Award for her work in “Sunset Boulevard” in Colorado and is the recipient of a Barrymore Award and an Arts Recognition Award. Her television credits include “Law and Order” and “One Life to Live”. She has performed in concerts around the world and on her father George Crumb’s Grammy winning 70th Birthday album. She opened Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Aspects of Love” in London and New York in the late 1980’s through early 1991.
