Action-packed Musical Comes to WICA! Winner of 6 Tony Awards!

Book by Larry Gelbart, Music by Cy Coleman, Lyrics by David Zippel

City of Angels is directed by Elizabeth Herbert, musical direction is by Sheila Weidendorf, choreography by Chelsea Randall, and Dwight Zehm is the stage manager.

Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40’s —the world of film studios and flimsy negligees—City of Angels is a homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures, but also filled with sidesplitting comedy. The musical weaves together two plots, the “real” world of a writer trying to turn his book into a screenplay, and the “reel” world of the fictional film. The real-life scenes are in color and the movie scenes are in black and white. 

The play boasts two musical scores with clever lyrics. 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, 1940's vintage. And a good musical is made so much better with the addition of a live band or orchestra. Musical director Sheila Weidendorf says, “City of Angels is, hands down, the smartest musical I have ever encountered." The show result is that best-of-all Hollywood conventions—a happy ending.
