    Vancouver will play host to the premiere of the Broadway musical
    “City of Angels” at Performance Works from July 8th – 17th

    Film Noir meets the Musical starring Michael Lomenda,
    Jennifer Copping, Michelle Harrison, and Crystal Balint

    This summer, Vancouver will play host to Vancouver’s Premiere of the Broadway musical “City of Angels” with a limited engagement run from July 8-17th at Granville Island’s Performance Works. This Tony award-winning musical comedy is homage to film noir that delightfully satirizes the glamour and decadence of 1940s Hollywood.

    Putting It Together (PIT) Collective, a group of local Vancouver artists, will be perform-ing and producing the show featuring a wide variety of talent that has appeared on Broadway, in hit TV shows and feature films. They’re proud to be part of Vancouver’s global reputation as a hub of talent and creativity.

    The musical “City of Angels” takes place in Los Angeles in the late 1940s. A New York crime novelist (Stine) agrees, at the behest of a Hollywood producer, to adapt his latest novel into a screenplay but how much is he willing to sacrifice for a taste of fame and fortune? The wisecracking and quick-witted Detective Stone has a way with women but is forever haunted by the one who got away in this musical spoof of film noir crime novels and Hollywood's treatment of writers that is smart, swingin', sexy, and funny.

    Tony award-winning “City of Angels” moves between the beautiful Technicolor world of Hollywood and Stine’s glamorous film noir-in-progress of the same title. While Stine’s movie plays out in black and white, he finds the dangerous temptations of the world of Los Angeles – the distraction of women, the lure of fame, and the artistic compromises being made right and left – all too colorful. Witty and glamorous, “City of Angels” features a sensational jazz score, including popular songs, “You Can Always Count on Me,” “Tennis Song,” and “I’m Nothing Without You.”
