MTG to Close Season with CITY OF ANGELS, 6/15
Musical Theatre Guild, the winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle Margaret Harford Award for sustained excellence in the theatre, will conclude their 2013-2014 season with the multiple award-winning musical CITY OF ANGELS. The one-night-only concert will take place at the Moss Theatre at New Roads School in Santa Monica on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 7:00 pm.
An homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures that rose to prominence in the 1940s, CITY OF ANGELS weaves together the "real" world of the writer getting his movie made and the "reel" world of the detective solving his case, and how the two worlds collide. With a typically jazzy, brassy Cy Coleman score and a typically hysterical Larry Gelbart book, it's no mystery why this show won both the Tony® and Drama Desk Awards for Best Score, Book and Musical!
Starring as writer Stein and detective Stone are Stan Chandler and Kevin Symons with fellow MTG company members Melissa Lyons Caldretti, Christopher Carothers, Melissa Fahn, Zachary Ford, David Holmes, Paul Keith, Roy Leake, Jr., Ashley Fox Linton, Tracy Lore, Glenn Shiroma and John Sloman rounding out the principal cast. As the "Angel City Four" are guest artists Laura Dickinson, Meloney Collins, Jordan Lamoureux and Fletcher Sheridan. CITY OF ANGELS, with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel and a book by Larry Gelbart, will be directed by Joel Bishoff with musical direction by Brad Ellis and is under the production supervision of Damon Kirsche.
