West End Michael Xavier Prepares for His Broadway Debut in “Sunset Boulevard”.

This spring, West End star and two-time Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier will reprise his role as Joe Gillis opposite Glenn Close in the Broadway revival of “Sunset Boulevard”. In recent years, Xavier has enjoyed starring turns in the U.K. productions of “Assassins”, “The Sound of Music”, “The Secret Garden”, and more. But it's this musical, which he starred in last year at the London Coliseum, that's brought him to New York to make his Broadway debut.

Recently, I had a chance to sit down with Xavier, thanks to our team at Show-Score, to hear about this exciting revival, as well as his innovative master class program that utilizes the talents of fellow West End stars to teach theater to children.
