I love Lea and I love Broadway!

My second favorite from Sunset Boulevard. I love how the story reflects the melancholy that often accompanies change and "progress". Silent Theater is not something we would ever want to go back to, but it was an art form in its own class.

This one is my favorite - the role was written for a woman, but I love this version by Scot Wisniewski and of course the ballad works equally for men whose stars also fell when "talkies" came in. He had to change "Norma" to "Scot" for it to work:)
