This weird and wacky musical features a Tony Award-winning score and follows the story of a girl who wants to be noticed , a boy who wants to fit in and the supercomputer inside his head who wants to take over the world! Set in a coastal New England town, the multi-award winning love story follows that of a carousel barker, Billy and a mill worker named Julie. When Billy commits a failed armed robbery, what will their future entail? Set in s Hollywood, City Of Angels tells two stories simultaneously — a screenwriter with a movie to finish played out in full colour and a private eye with a case to crack with a film noir feel. Packed with plenty of glamour and jazz, this swinging show is set to be a musical masterpiece. Follow the remarkable story of the world-famous vocal group, The Drifters, and Faye Treadwell, the trailblazing woman who created them.
