Great performances by all the leads. Orchestra was a little weak and there were some technical issues with the voice over portion of the show, but overall it was a great show. It may be first weekend issues that are just being worked out.

I really enjoyed this show! Its the second one I've seen at this venue and the company does an outstanding job. I was concerned about not being able to select my seat and was assigned center front! Thanks for a great evening!

More Information


City of Angels chronicles the life of Stine, a young novelist, attempting to get his screenplay written.  As Stine writes his private eye story in colorful 1940s-style similes, his written word is recreated on stage in the black-and-white film noir style of the era. The result, according to publisher Tams-Witmark’s website, is “a tale of decadence and homicide with a liberal sprinkling of femmes fatale.” _

City of Angels_ ran for 878 performances on Broadway.  The show marked Larry Gelbart’s triumphant return to Broadway (his first Broadway venture was A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum), and Cy Coleman’s return to his jazz roots. 

The show was met with such acclaim and accolades that a second Los Angeles company opened in June, 1991 while the Broadway production was still going strong.  The lead roles have been played by James Naughton and Barry Williams of Brady Bunch fame.
