The Possum Point Players production of City of Angels, opening September 28th, transports audiences back in time to 1940’s Hollywood. It is a musical homage to the Hollywood crime genre of motion pictures that was popular in the 1940's.
Directed by Kenney Workman, with musical direction by Melanie Bradley, City of Angels will run September 28, 29, October 5, and 6, 2012, at 8 PM and on September 30 and October 7, 2012, at 2 PM at Possum Hall in Georgetown, DE. Tickets are $23 for adults, $22 for students and seniors.
Tickets are on sale online at www.possumpointplayers.org and also by phone at 302-856-4560.
City of Angels boasts two musical scores, with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel, and book by Larry Gelbart. One provides the cast with numbers to help reveal certain emotions or to celebrate particular moments in the way that only music can.
The "other" score was written to emulate pure movie soundtrack music, 1940's vintage, capturing swinging jazz, torchy ballads, witty lyrics, and even a Manhattan Transfer-like Greek chorus. The music has been said to be the most exciting Jazz-Swing score done for Broadway, with the wittiest lyrics.
City of Angels is being produced through special arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc.
Possum Point Players is supported, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
