Review from unclebyron

A tough play to produce because of all the scene changes and reality/movie modes but CT brought it off wonderfully. Having a live orchestra was especially nice.

Review from Eric G.

Description

Winner of 6 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, only our own Los Angeles could inspire this season opener.  Tough guys and shady dames populate this musical noir flash back to hot-jive/cool jazz, post-war LA. 

From the pen of award-winning writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H) comes the story of a clever novelist who finds he’s no match for Hollywood as he struggles to turn his hard-boiled detective novel into a movie.  His Technicolor adventures, and those of his black-and-white P. I. hero, Stone, unfold to the harmonies of the fabulous ’40s. 

Full of sassy dialog and terrific music, if you ever miss cutting a rug to Tommy Dorsey, or if you just love LA; this show is a must see.
