“Josie Rourke, the last Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, is bringing her production back to London six years after it played in the West End to enormous success. Set in LA in the 40s, it bites at the treacherous culture of Hollywood.”
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…
Josie Rourke’s “ingenious, stupendous revival” (The Telegraph) premiered in 2014, when it was hailed as “a blissful evening” (The Stage) that’s “smart, seductive and very funny” (Evening Standard). With a swinging score by Cy Coleman and David Zippel and a brilliantly witty book by Larry Gelbart, CITY OF ANGELS is a musical love letter to the glamorous world of old Hollywood and film noir.
The West End production will star Hadley Fraser, Rosalie Craig, Rebecca Trehearn and, making her West End debut, Vanessa Williams.
