Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

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, where 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.

City of Angels is booking from 31 August 2020 until 5 September 2020 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…

Theo James boards ‘City Of Angels’ musical in London
Divergent star Theo James is the latest actor to join the forthcoming West End transfer of City Of Angels at the Garrick Theatre in London. Josie Rourke's production has an expanding starry cast including American actress Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) and former Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts in her theatrical stage debut. West End favourites Hadley Fraser (The Winter's Tale, Young Frankenstein), Rosalie Craig (Company) and Rebecca Trehearn (Showboat) will reprise their leading roles from the Donmar Warehouse run with Jonathan Slinger (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Urine Town) also joining the cast. Theo James will play 'Stone' the better looking, stronger, more powerful imaginary counterpart to Hadley Fraser's 'Stine'. Whilst James is best know for his film and tv work, the Bristol Old Vic graduate's stage credits include Sex with Strangers alongside Emilia Fox (Silent Witness) at Hampstead Theatre and Closer at Nottingham New Theatre.  Rounding out the cast are Marc Elliott, Nick Cavaliere, Adam Fogarty, Mark Penfold, Rob Houchen, Joshua St Clair, Cindy Bellot, Sadie-Jean Shirley, Manuel Pacific and Ryan Reid. 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 witty book by Larry Gelbart, the show is described as a love letter to the glamorous world of old Hollywood and film noir. The show is centred on Hadley Fraser's character, a crime novelist called Stine, who is turning his novel into a film where the people he imagines for celluloid appear in monochrome. The creative team includes design by Robert Jones, lighting by Howard Harrison, musical direction by Gareth Valentine, choreography by Stephen Mear, and sound design by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster for Autograph. City of Angels is booking from 7 March 2020 until 5 September 202 at the Garrick Theatre, London. City of Angels Tickets are available now.

The Donmar’s ‘City Of Angels’ gets West End revival
The Olivier Award winning Donmar Warehouse production of City of Angels will return to the West End in 2020. Josie Rourke, former Artistic Director of Donmar Warehouse, will revive her 2014 production at the Garrick Theatre with former cast members Hadley Fraser (Young Frankenstein), Rosalie Craig (Company) and Rebecca Trehearn (A Christmas Carol, Showboat). Also joining the production in her West End debut will be US actress Vanessa Williams, best known to UK audiences for her tv work in shows such as Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives.  The Emmy, Grammy and Tony nominee made her stage debut as ‘the woman’ in a 1985 production of One Man Band and has since appeared in productions of Kiss Of The Spider Woman, Carmen Jones, Into The Woods, Sondheim on Sondheim The Trip To Bountiful and After Midnight. The cast also features Marc Elliott, Nick Cavaliere, Adam Fogarty, Mark Penfold, Rob Houchen, Joshua St Clair, Cindy Bellot, Sadie-Jean Shirley, Manuel Pacific and Ryan Reid. Described as a musical love letter to the glamorous world of old Hollywood and film noir, the show has a score by Cy Coleman and David Zippel and a book by Larry Gelbart. Rourke has also managed to reunite the original creative team including choreographer Stephen Mear (Mary Poppins, Sunset Boulevard, White Christmas) and designer Robert Jones. Josie Rourke said: “City of Angels was a landmark experience for me at the Donmar. We all longed to hear Cy Coleman’s classic score, and see this incredible design on a bigger stage. “Nica’s passion for the show has brought about this reunion, and I’m very grateful that through her championing, audiences will have the chance to see this classic production in the West End.” Burns added: “Only 17,500 people had the opportunity to see Josie Rourke’s outstandingly brilliant production of this terrific, multi-award-winning musical – the equivalent of only a month in a West End playhouse. “It has taken five years to reunite the original creative team and finally give a wider audience the chance to see this sensationally sexy, musical masterpiece.” City of Angels will run from 7 March 2020 until 5 September 202 at the Garrick Theatre, London.
