Moonlight Stage Productions Presents Sunset Blvd. 1200 Vale Terrace Dr. in Vista) I saw “Sunset Blvd” two weeks ago at Moonlight Stage Productions. The movie with Gloria Swanson and Bill Holden is one of my all time faves. I’ve seen it 10 times so I totally understood and loved how Moonlight Stage Productions presented this. Acting amazing,singing was GREAT. Moonlight’s acoustics are the best. The stage craft very inventive and perfect. If you’ve never seen the the 1950 Billy Wilder masterpiece I suggest you do. You’ll appreciate this great musical that much more
