FRC Presents: City of Angels

Three million people in the City of Angels according to the last census, easily half of them up to something they don’t want the other half to know.


It’s 1940s Los Angeles. A moody, gritty time for private investigator Stone. Or so it is in the imagination of New York novelist Stine. When Hollywood

offers him the opportunity adapt his books into film, he packs up and moves to Los Angeles himself to work on a screenplay for movie producer/director Buddy Fidler, much to the disgust of his wife Gabby.
All too soon the parallels between the fictional world of Stone and that of Stine navigating the real Hollywood of film studios and flimsy negligees becomes clear and the borders between the two worlds blur as well. It is a tale of decadence and homicide with a liberal sprinkling of femmes fatale.
In its original Broadway incarnation, City of Angels won 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score. On the West End it won Best Musical both as a new musical in 1994 production and for the 2015 Revival.
