Incredible standing ovation as Glenn Close and the cast of Sunset Boulevard blows the roof off the London Coliseum

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.

#SunsetBoulevard was stunning. @TheGlennClose @siobhandillonuk @michaelxavierUK & co are all just astonishing. What a show!
