Where is it showing?

City of Angels is running at the Garrick Theatre.

When does it open?

The musical opens for a limited season in March 2020.

What is it about?

Set in the glamorous streets of Old Hollywood, City of Angels follows crime writer Stine as he adapts his famous novels for the big screen. Merging fact and fiction as Stine’s dogged detective works to crack the case, the musical is an ingenious tribute to film noir, full of sultry, swinging songs including "Double Talk" and "I'm Nothing Without You".

First opening at Covent Garden's Donmar Warehouse, this "blissful" (The Stage) revival of a Broadway classic won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival in 2015.

Who is in it?

Rosalie Craig (Company; The Light Princess) stars as Gabby/Bobbi and Hadley Fraser (Young Frankenstein; Les Misérables) as Stine; both reprise their roles from the 2014 Donmar Warehouse production. They are joined by Rebecca Trehearn as Donna/Oolie, Vanessa Williams as Carla/Alaura, Nicola Roberts as Avril/Mallory, Jonathan Slinger as Hollywood mogul Buddy Fidler, and Theo James as Detective Stone.

Who is the creative team?

City of Angels features a book by Larry Gilbert, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by David Zippel. Director Josie Rourke makes a welcome return to the West End after stepping down as Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse in 2018. Her previous credits include Coriolanus and The Vote on stage and Mary Queen of Scots on film.

How long is it?

A running time for City of Angels at the Garrick Theatre is yet to be confirmed.
