CITY OF ANGELS is the rarest of Broadway musical comedies; one that is not only loaded with music and written in the contemporary jazz idiom, but also filled with sidesplitting comedy. Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40s, the world of film studios and flimsy negligees, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist, attempting a screenplay for movie producer/director, Buddy Fidler. When his alter-ego and main film character, Stone, comes to life on stage, fantasy and reality intertwine to create an intricate, funny and touching double plot.
