The set (Colin Richmond) is incredibly luxurious. Norma’s house on Sunset is smoky and dark, oozing with a vintage, muted glamour. A black marble staircase flanked by burned-out candles descends upon the stage; the sultry atmosphere with exquisite furniture and grand décor externalizing Norma’s vision of how a star should live. Large sliding studio doors neatly transform the set to a backstage film set. This, together with the rear of the stage, are used to full effect, doubling up as a backdrop for projections. It lends itself well to the film noir genre of old Hollywood, which is woven not only through the narrative, but likely as inspiration for the design.
