Two decades after its London premier, Donmar artistic director Josie Rourke revives one of the acknowledged greats of twentieth century musical theatre.

Hollywood comes calling for a New York novelist. The offer is too good to refuse: adapt the private detective protagonist of his books into a big-screen hero. The siren song of Los Angeles is a dangerous temptation and while his movie plays out in black and white, his new life is all-too colourful.

With a book by acclaimed comic screenwriter Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie), sensational jazz score by Cy Coleman and sizzling lyrics from David Zippel, CITY OF ANGELS, is a witty and glorious celebration of film noir. More information on City of Angels at theatregold DataBase
