"City of Angels played on Broadway between 1989 and 1992, winning numerous awards, including the coveted Tony for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score. Ever since seeing a summer stock theatre colleague go from understudy to lead one night in that Broadway production, I've wanted to bring the show to USM, knowing what a challenge it would be. With 40 changes of scene, a representation of two different worlds - 1940's Hollywood, and the movie that the Hollywood characters are producing - and with most of the actors playing a minimum of two distinct roles, our cast and crew have dedicated themselves and their creativity to making the story come alive for you. You'll see how artists often gain inspiration from their ' real' life, and in this musical you're able to see those 'real' life characters play those roles in the movie scenes. It may keep you on your toes as the story not only alternates between reality and fantasy, but occasionally flashbacks to other moments in time. So, be ready to enjoy an imaginative ride that we hope will be a fun adventure back to Los Angeles of the 1940 's and the excitement of the movie business." - Wil Kilroy
