Tickets for City of Angels are available now!
After a critically acclaimed season at The Donmar Warehouse, the Olivier Award-winning revival of City of Angels is coming to London’s Garrick Theatre for a full West End season of the hottest musical revival to hit the stage in years!
The incredible City of Angels revival transfers to the West End!
This incredible musical celebration of film noir is making its way back to the West End! It has been announced that City of Angels starring Rosalie Craig will come to the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End for an unbelievable run starting March 2020.
When a successful author turns his hand to adapting one of his novels to a screenplay he quickly learns that no one in Hollywood ever sticks to the script. He’s a writer with a deadline to meet and a film to finish. There’s also a private investigator with a woman to locate, a case to solve and a heart to steal. Their two worlds intertwine and collide and somehow to script gets flipped!
Be careful because it isn’t always easy to separate what happens on the streets and in the sheets of Tinseltown from what is being played out on the silver screen.
This hardboiled show has been wowing critics and audience alike since it first graced the Broadway stage. The show has won an astonishing 6 Tony Awards and 3 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Best Musical Revival.
