It’s 1940s Los Angeles—a moody, gritty time for private investigator Stone. Or at least that’s how it is in the imagination of New York novelist Stine.

But when Hollywood offers him the opportunity adapt his books into film, the line between his fictional world and that of the real Hollywood begins to blur. Film studios and flimsy negligees turn into a tale of decadence and homicide. Calgary’s own Front Row Centre takes on this musical comedy that took home six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score.

City of Angels runs January 12 to 27, 2018 at the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre (375 Bermuda Dr. NW). Parental guidance is recommended.
