Krannert Center at the Virginia: Lyric Theatre presents City of Angels

Music and Lyrics by Cy Coleman and David Zippel 
Book by Larry Gelbart 
Sarah Wigley, stage director 
Michael Tilley, music director 

A smart and stylish film noir musical, Tony Award-winner City of Angels captures the gritty sights and sounds of Hollywood’s classic detective movies, all set to a brilliant, bluesy jazz score. Written by the composer of Sweet Charity, it is the story of a screenwriter and the film he is writing—it was a triumph at Broadway’s Virginia Theatre, built by the very same architects that built its namesake in Champaign.
