The Guildhall School of Music & Drama is to present a production of City of Angels, an awardwinning
musical comedy by Cy Coleman (music) and David Zippel (lyrics). Set in the glamorous,
seductive world of 1940s Hollywood the plot centres on two simultaneous stories. On the one hand
Stine, a young novelist trying his hand at writing a film noir screenplay, on the other Stone, the
detective-hero of Stineís screenplay who acts out the movieís plot as each new scene is written.
As Stine battles to hold on to his integrity and his marriage, he struggles with the two worlds as they
intermingle and interact, the trials of both writer and protagonist culminating in an all-or-nothing

City of Angelsí Broadway premiere was at the Virginia Theatre in 1989 after which it transferred to
the West Endís Prince of Wales Theatre in 1993. It has won a host of awards including six Tonyís,
nine Drama Desk Awards, three Outer Critic Awards and The New York Drama Critics Circle Award
for Best Musical.
