"In Carroll's autobiography THE LEGS ARE THE LAST TO GO she devotes a chapter to the SUNSET experience, saying Andrew Lloyd Webber was unhelpful in her getting the role in Toronto to the point of being obstructive and she firmly believes he did not want an African American actress playing Norma Desmond."

It could be that he did not want an African American actress in the role, or it could just be another example of his absolutely horrendous record in terms of having no idea what he wants in terms of casting -- see also Patti LuPone and Faye Dunaway in SUNSET, Madonna in the film of Evita
