CITY OF ANGELS features book by Larry Gelbart, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by David Zippel. The musical comedy follows a writer attempting to adapt his book into a screenplay and the progress of the film.
CITY OF ANGELS opened on Broadway in 1989 and ran through 1992, directed by Michael Blakemore. It took home six Tony Awards in 1990. A concurrent production opened in Los Angeles at the Shubert Theater in 1991, starring Stephen Bogardus, Lauren Mitchell, Randy Graff and James Naughton. Shortly after, a US national tour kicked off and toured through the end of the Broadway run. CITY OF ANGELS first appeared in the West End in 1993, with Blakemore reprising his role as director and Roger Allam, Martin, Smith and Henry Goodman leading the cast. The show went on to win the 1994 Olivier Award for Best Musical.

She has appeared onstage in The Light Princess, Table and London Road at the National, A Musical 50 Years, Hecuba and Alice in Wonderland at the RSC, and the stage adaptation of The Lord of the Rings.
