1993 - 1994

City of Angels

Los Angeles, late 1940s…


Stine comes to L.A. to write the screenplay for one of his novels (City of Angels), in which Stone is the leading character. Only when he gets to L.A. does he find out that producer/director Buddy Fiddler is really the man in charge. Two story lines are threaded throughout the musical - what is happening to Stine in real life and what his characters are doing in the screenplay which he is trying to write to the producer's satisfaction.

Unlike any other musical, City of Angels uses something like a split-screen technique in which one side of the stage portrays the characters in Stine's book. As Stine's screenplay unfolds and is re-written, the characters are subject to his scribbles. On the other side of the stage, we have reality.
