Getting Up Guide: Norman Rockwell, 'Sunset Boulevard'

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Tuesday:

Sunset Boulevard
Was the Hollywood of old really that different from what we see splashed across every day? Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical "Sunset Boulevard" takes audiences to the Paramount Pictures lot of the 1950s, and while there probably were fewer failed drug tests, Twitter outbursts and courtroom crying jags, there were plenty of shattered egos, two-timing lovers and revenge plots. Opening night at the Signature Theatre is tonight at 7:30 p.m.

You've never seen holiday ornaments like these before: 30 artists costumed as gingerbread men, toy soldiers and snowmen perform acrobatic feats worthy of a three-ring circus.

Virginia Mecklenburg: Norman Rockwell and the Movies

The museum's senior curator discusses the American artist's affinity for and influence on the American cinema at 7 p.m. If you have been waiting to check out the Rockwell exhibition, this is a great opportunity before it closes Jan. 2.
