City of Angels

Broadway
Musical
Original
A disillusioned crime novelist adapts his latest novel into a screenplay as his marriage falls apart. At the same time, we see the adventures of his detective, presented as if in a black-and-white film. The detective has a way with women but is forever haunted by the one who got away, in this musical spoof of film noir crime movies and Hollywood's treatment of writers.
