Winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, City of Angels is a clever tribute to 1940s film noir. With two plots running simultaneously, this ingenious musical skillfully weaves the real world and the “reel” world into one unforgettable adventure. When Stine embarks to faithfully adapt his novel into a screenplay, he discovers the difficulty of maintaining his artistic integrity against Hollywood movie moguls. As the line separating fantasy from reality is blurred, Stine must find a way to produce a happy ending!

“A spoof with a serious side…looks like a dream and plays like a hoot, letting a knockout cast loose on knockabout comedy” – Variety
