NEW YORK (AP) — Glenn Close just can't get enough of Norma Desmond. The "Fatal Attraction" star will take her next crack at the aging silent film star from the musical "Sunset Boulevard" to Broadway.

The English National Opera's revival earlier this year of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical starring Close will land at the Palace Theatre in February with a 40-piece orchestra under the direction of Lonny Price.

"Sunset Boulevard" tells the story of a faded film star who recruits a young writer to help relaunch her career.

Close won a Tony Award in 1995 as Desmond. She was last on Broadway in a revival of the play "A Delicate Balance." Her film and TV roles include "Dangerous Liaisons," ''Air Force One," ''Fatal Attraction" and "Damages."
