City of Angels

Book by Larry Gelbart

Music by Cy Coleman

Lyrics by David Zippel

City of Angels tells two intertwining stories – one about the writer, Stine, learning hard lessons in Hollywood as he struggles to turn his novel into a screenplay and the other about the main character of the novel, the detective Stone, as he combs through the gritty Los Angeles underworld to find a missing heiress.  Featuring an unforgettable jazz score by Cy Coleman, this sexy, smart, and clever show never pulls its punches.  It is a witty and glorious celebration of film noir, Hollywood, and the complications of love.
