City of Angels – November 2016

Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present City of Angels running from the 4th to 19th November 2016 at the Williamstown Mechanics Institute Theatre.

 

“There are plenty of musicals with clever lyrics. Some offer clever books. A handful even manage clever melodies. But “City of Angels,” which won six Tonys in 1990, is the rarity that has all three!”  New York Times

 

City of Angels, the award-winning musical, is a wickedly funny celebration of the 1940’s film noir genre and dark detective fiction which takes place in two worlds. The ambitious writer of a Hollywood screenplay, Stine, struggles as he negotiates his demanding film studio boss, compromises on his movie and dealing with the women in his life, while his creation, ‘private eye’ Stone takes on a life of his own and mysteriously gatecrashes Stine’s life.

 

While screenwriter Stine’s detective story plays out in black and white in the ‘reel world’, he finds the dangerous temptations of ‘real world’ Los Angeles almost too colourful and endlessly alluring.

 

Winning 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical, this sensational jazz score by Cy Coleman, sizzling lyrics from David Zippel and book by acclaimed comic screenwriter Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) is a witty and glorious celebration of film noir.
