The legendary Glenn Close wowed audiences at the London Coliseum last night, reprising the role of Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard. Stunning audience members with a powerful and mesmerising performance, the Coliseum erupted into a standing ovation before Glenn Close finished her last note. With the official press night on 4th April, we've put together some of the best tweets following last night's first preview.
