Chromolume Theatre Company launches it's 3rd Season with the six-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy City of Angels. Lauded for its "smart, swinging, sexy" style (Newsweek), City of Angels is directed by Award-winning director Steven Benson, with musical direction by Gary Mattison .
The show is set in 1940's Los Angeles where a fledgling screenwriter is adapting his detective novel into a film for an egomaniacal producer. While Stine struggles to transform his words from the page to the screen, the action moves back and forth between two worlds: Stine's Technicolor "real" world, a post-War Hollywood populated with overbearing producers, saucy secretaries, and self-serving starlets, and the black and white "reel" world of Stine's imagination, a film noir entitled City of Angels that stars Stine's alter ego, a sardonic Private Investigator named Stone. City of Angels features an uproarious script by Larry Gelbart, snappy lyrics by David Zippel, and a jazzy musical score by Cy Coleman that is loaded with popular songs that range from show stoppers to torch ballads.
