City of Angels Theatre Contest is giving away tickets to a weekend performance of City of Angels on Saturday, July 15th or Sunday, July 16th.

The Pit Collective presents City of Angels, which is now on at Performance Works | Granville Island until July 17th.

The Details

The place – Los Angeles.  The time – the late 1940s. A New York crime novelist agrees, at the behest of a Hollywood producer, to adapt his latest novel into a screenplay but how much is he willing to sacrifice for a taste of fame and fortune?  As the disillusioned author’s marriage falls apart, we see, simultaneously, the adventures of his detective presented as if in black and white film.  The wisecracking and quick-witted “Detective Stone” has a way with women but is forever haunted by the one who got away in this musical spoof of film noir crime novels and Hollywood’s treatment of writers that is smart, swingin’, sexy, and funny.
