City of Angels is a musical comedies loaded with Cy Coleman’s award winning jazz score, with comedy supplied by Larry Gelbart of M*A*S*H fame. This clever musical comedy won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Book and Score. Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40’s, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist attempting a screenplay of his bestselling novel for movie producer Buddy Fiedler. Stine’s writing battles in the legendary Hollywood studio system are intercut with a film noir enactment of his screenplay in progress. Femme fatales, double crosses and mystery collide with Tinseltown politics, creating a double-feature quality that leads to romance and humor in a loving but bittersweet valentine to the dream factory of Hollywood.
