About the event

University of Chichester’s extraordinary Touring company return with that rarest of musical comedies, the 6 Tony Award winning, CITY OF ANGELS, set in the glamorously seductive world of 1940’s Hollywood.

Part film-noir detective story and part fish-out-water romantic comedy, it’s loaded with great songs and a stunning jazz score played by a professional live band. Enter the world of film studios and fatal attractions as a young novelist has to make endless compromises in the screenplay that he’s writing. His pages, featuring a Raymond Chandler-esque investigator hero, are acted out on screen in glorious black and white!

As the writer risks his integrity and marriage, our hero risks his life to solve a mystery. It’s a musical tale of decadence, deceit and homicide that sparks with wicked humour and femmes fatales!

It’s also the only ‘colour-coded’ show audiences are ever likely to see! Directed by Karen Howard with Choreography by Damien Delaney and Musical Direction by Mark Crossland whose combined credits include Opera North, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Southwark Playhouse.
