Continuing her tour of Broadway productions, Hillary Clinton arrived at Sunset Boulevard this evening to a rapturous standing O:

I saw the show last week, sans Hillary. My impressions: It's still not a very good show, but it's solid enough, and has those three crazy-good songs (that bring the house down).

In a stripped-down, chic-looking production, Glenn Close is 70 playing 50 trying to be 20, and I think the fact that she pulls it off is a testament to how differently we view age. She definitely is a wildly different Norma Desmond than Swanson, and her age does change the vibe, but just makes the story a little more desperate.

Close is in good voice and overcomes fairly forgettable trappings, not including the eye-popping wardrobe, which I understand is original to the first production. (Which I saw!)

It's definitely a show worth seeing, if only for Close's triumph.
