Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre Presents: City of Angels
June 20 @ 6:00 PM - June 30 @ 9:00 PM CDT
An event every day that begins at 6:00pm, repeating indefinitely
Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40’s—the world of film studios and flimsy negligees—the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a young novelist attempting to write a screenplay of his bestselling novel for a big time movie producer.
Stine’s writing battles in the legendary Hollywood studio system are intercut with a film noir enactment of his screenplay in progress. Femme fatales, double crosses and mystery collide hilariously with Tinseltown politics. This double-feature quality leads to romance and humor in a loving but bittersweet valentine to the dream factory of Hollywood.
