City of Angels

City of Angels is a musical that cleverly interweaves two plots: the real world of a writer, Stine, attempting to adapt his detective novel into a screenplay, and the fictional world of his creation, 1940s Los Angeles, inhabited by his detective character, Stone.


The story explores themes of love, betrayal, and the blurred lines between fiction and reality, as Stine’s Hollywood dealings begin to mirror the complex, noir-style intrigue of his detective story.

The musical is celebrated for its witty dialogue, intricate plot, and dual narratives, offering a stylish homage to the film noir genre while examining the sacrifices made for art and the complexities of the creative process.
