City Of Angels finished its run at The Donmar Warehouse on February 7th 2015. It picked up two Olivier Awards.

Two decades after its London premier, Donmar Warehouse Artistic director Josie Rourke revived one of the acknowledged greats of twentieth century musical theatre.

Hollywood comes calling for a New York novelist. The offer is too good to refuse: adapt the private detective protagonist of his books into a big-screen hero. The siren song of Los Angeles is a dangerous temptation and while his movie plays out in black and white, his new life is all-too colourful.

With a sensational jazz score by Cy Coleman, sizzling lyrics from David Zippel and book by acclaimed comic screenwriter Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie), CITY OF ANGELS, is a witty and glorious celebration of film noir.
