ABOUT City of Angels

The Donmar Warehouse’s Olivier Award winning production of CITY OF ANGELS hits the West End!

Josie Rourke’s “ingenious, stupendous revival” (The Telegraph) premiered in 2014, when it was hailed as “a blissful evening” (The Stage) that’s “smart, seductive and very funny” (Evening Standard).

With a swinging score by Cy Coleman and David Zippel and a brilliantly witty book by Larry Gelbart, CITY OF ANGELS is a musical love letter to the glamorous world of old Hollywood and film noir.

The West End production will star Hadley Fraser (The Winter’s Tale, Young Frankenstein), Rosalie Craig (Company), Rebecca Trehearn (Showboat), and making her West End debut, Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Into The Woods).

City of Angels will run from 7 March 2020 until 5 September 202 at the Garrick Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

A screenwriter with a movie to finish.

A private eye with a case to crack.

But nothing’s black and white when a dame is involved.

And does anyone stick to the script in this city?

This is Tinseltown. You gotta ask yourself: what’s real…and what’s reel…
