When New York novelist Stine accepts an opportunity to adapt his books into a Hollywood film, he moves to the land of perennial sunshine, palm trees, and stars. As Stine’s movie plays out in glamorous black and white, he finds the temptations of 1940s Hollywood–women, fame, and artistic compromise–all too colourful. Witty and glamorous, City of Angels features a sensational jazz score in a musical comedy homage to film noir.

Tony Award™winner for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.

In 1931 Berlin, as the Nazi Party rises to power under Adolph Hitler, the city changes from exciting and vital to ominous and violent, dramatically impacting the lives of struggling writer Cliff Bradshaw, vivacious cabaret performer Sally Bowles, and the other denizens of the seedy Kit Kat Klub. With some of the most memorable songs in theatre history (Cabaret, Willkommen, Maybe This Time), this Tony Award™-winning musical is about following your heart while the world loses its way.
