A screenwriter with a movie to finish.

A private eye with a case to crack.

But nothing’s black and white when a dame is involved.

And does anyone stick to the script in this city?

 This is Tinseltown. You gotta ask yourself: what’s real…and what’s reel

With a swinging score by some of Broadway’s legendary creatives Cy Coleman (Redhead, Barnum, Seesaw, Little Me) and David Zippel (The Woman In White, The Goodbye Girl, Disney’s Hercules) and a brilliantly witty book by Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum), City of Angels is a musical love letter to the glamorous world of old Hollywood and film noir.

Nica Burns, Producer said: “Only 17,500 people had the opportunity to see Josie Rourke’s outstandingly brilliant production of this terrific, multi-award-winning musical – the equivalent of only a month in a West End playhouse.  It has taken 5 years to reunite the original creative team and finally give a wider audience the chance to see this sensationally sexy, musical masterpiece.  A strictly limited season so don’t miss out a second time. Book your tickets now!”

City Of Angels is directed by Josie Rourke, choreography by Stephen Mear, designed by Robert Jones, musical supervision by Gareth Valentine, Lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster for Autograph, video design by Duncan McLean and casting by Alastair Coomer and Jacob Sparrow.

City Of Angel’s will run at the Garrick Theatre from 5 Match – 5  September 2020.
