City of Angels is a rare musical comedy that is loaded with contemporary jazz music and side-splitting comedy! Set in the glamourous Hollywood film studios of the 1940's, and reminiscent of Bogart at his best, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist, attempting to write a screenplay for an egotistical movie producer/director. Audiences will be treated to the juxtaposition between illusion and reality as every scene written by Stine is enacted by a group of fantasy characters in true '40's "private eye style"!
