Set in the seductive Hollywood of the 1940s, City of Angels chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a disillusioned young novelist attempting to write a screenplay for a tyrannical movie producer.  As his marriage falls apart, we follow Stine’s film alter-ego, the dashing detective Stone, who is haunted by the memory of the girl that got away.  With a jazzy, brassy score, City of Angels simultaneously spoofs the glamorous real world of old Hollywood and the film noir “reel” world of thugs and femme fatales.

“The clever lines, lyrics, and songs keep on coming!  It’s a rarity that has all three!” – New York Times
