City of Angels

Music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel, and a book by Larry Gelbart
Directed by Scott Neese

In the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the '40s, New York novelist Stine is offered the opportunity to adapt his books into a film for the silver screen. He packs up and moves to the home of perennial sunshine, palm trees, and stars. Tony award-winning City of Angels moves between the beautiful Technicolor world of Hollywood and Stine’s glamorous film noir-in-progress of the same title. While Stine’s movie plays out in black and white, Stine finds the dangerous temptations of the world of Los Angeles – the distraction of women, the lure of fame, and the artistic compromises being made right and left – all too colorful. Witty and glamorous, City of Angels features a sensational jazz score, including popular songs, “You Can Always Count on Me,” “Tennis Song,” and “I’m Nothing Without You.”
