About the showPlease note that remaining performances of City of Angels have been cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The production is expected to be rescheduled at a later date.
Film noir heads to the West End as Josie Rourke’s acclaimed production of City of Angels transfers from the Donmar Warehouse. Starring Olivier Award nominee Rosalie Craig (Company), the musical runs at the Garrick Theatre.
When crime writer Stine is summoned to Hollywood to adapt his novels for the screen, it seems like all his dreams have come true. But his unpredictable and moody creation, detective Stone, isn’t content to stay on the page, and reality is about to become brighter than he could ever imagine.
Featuring a catchy score including "I'm Nothing Without You" and "You Can Always Count On Me", City of Angels is a dazzling, stylish throwback to film noir.
City of Angels in the West End stars Hadley Fraser as Stine and Rosalie Craig as Gabby/Bobbi. Fraser has previously appeared in Les Miserables, whilst Craig enjoyed huge acclaim for her starring role in Marianne Elliott’s gender-swapped Company. Further casting includes Theo James as Detective Stine, Nicola Roberts as Avril/Mallory, Jonathan Slinger as Buddy Fidler, and Vanessa Williams as Carla/Alaura.
The classic musical has a book by Larry Gelbart, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by David Zippel. Director Josie Rourke (Mary Queen of Scots) returns to the show after helming its revival at the Donmar Warehouse in 2014.
A crime writer, his wayward detective, and a mysterious woman… anything can happen in the bright lights of Los Angeles. Catch City of Angels at the Garrick Theatre from 5 March 2020.
Who Should See It?Fans of Rosalie Craig’s incredible performance as Bobbie in Company should book tickets for her return to the West End in City of Angels. Those who enjoy a smart and snappy period musical will also find plenty to enjoy here.
