City of Angels
is the rarest of musical comedies: loaded with Cy Coleman’s award winning jazz score, but also filled with sidesplitting 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 world of film studios and flimsy negligees—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 hilariously with Tinseltown politics. This double-feature quality leads to romance and humor in a loving but bittersweet valentine to the dream factory of Hollywood.
