Jones received standing ovations every night for her performance as faded silent-screen actress Norma Desmond when the musical was on at the London Coliseum. Now it's reached Birmingham, the ovations continue.
This Tony award-winning stage version of Sunset Boulevard from Andrew Lloyd Webber is performed at Birmingham Hippodrome until November 18.
Alongside Jones is actor and Strictly Come Dancing favourite Danny Mac as Joe Gillis in the tawdry, Hollywood tale of passion, betrayal and sexual obsession. Something particularly relevant to today's scandals about the film industry.
The stage show is based on Billy Wilder's legendary film, but on top of that, has Don Black and Christopher Hampton's book and lyrics.
It's very dark and, at times, an uneasy insight into the inner workings of Hollywood - how it can make you a star and spit you out, and leave its former stars deluded.
Danny Mac plays out-of-work writer Joe, who stumbles across ageing actress Norma Desmond at her mansion in Sunset Boulevard. Manipulated by Norma and her money, he ends up becoming trapped into becoming her lover with disastrous consequences.
Mac is a confident, well-cast lead as he has a strong voice and presence on stage that is a charismatic match for Jones.
The orchestra makes this a fabulous experience for the ears as the dramatic score is powerful.
Yet while the songs are fittingly moody, they aren't the most memorable of Lloyd Webber's back-catalogue and include tracks like Sunset Boulevard, As If We Never Said Goodbye, The Greatest Star Of All and The Perfect Year.
Meanwhile, Adam Pearce playing servant Max stood out to for his particularly distinctive deep voice.
