"City of Angels"- A Jazz Musical
"City of Angels"- A Jazz Musical

May 31, June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 2019

A smart and stylish film noir musical, Tony Award winner CITY OF ANGELS captures the gritty sights and sounds of Hollywoods classic detective movies, all set to a brilliant, bluesy jazz score. In the late 1940s, Stine, a bookish writer of detective stories, struggles to adapt his crime novel into a workable screenplay. As Stine tries to maintain some integrity in the backstabbing world of Hollywood, his protagonist, a hard-boiled private eye named Stone, fights for survival in a city full of criminals and opportunists.

In a brilliant design choice, the stories are told on a split stage: Stines world is in full color, while Stones appears in black and white. This double feature quality leads to many other unique production values, the most notable being the fact that CITY OF ANGELS is perhaps the only color coded show any theatre audience is likely to see. The movie scenes appear in shades of black and white, and the real life scenes are in technicolor.

With wit, humor, and a fantastic Cy Coleman score, CITY OF ANGELS captures the snappy dialogue of a Raymond Chandler novel and the glitzy showmanship of classic Hollywood; the result is a crowd-pleasing musical unlike any other. The show boasts two musical scores, actually. One provides the cast with numbers to help reveal certain emotions or to celebrate particular moments in the way that only music can. The other score was written to emulate pure movie soundtrack music, 1940s vintage. It is entirely appropriate, then, that the final curtain comes down on two happy endings.

The Arts at Angeloria's venue (circa 1908) will host this production in its unique Art Barn- reminiscent of the Gene Kelley/Judy Garland "Summerstock" setting. Guests will enjoy visiting the period-decorated Main House for concessions and facilities and strolling the grounds for some early summer fresh air pre-show and at intermission. Performances are scheduled for May 31,June 1,2,7,8,9, 2019.

Director: Kate Luurtsema
