By Cy Coleman, David Zippel and Larry Gelbart. SYMT (Sydney Youth Musical Theatre). Director: Celeste Notley-Smith Hornsby RSL Club. July 6 – 14, 2012.
Youth musical theatre just got pretty raunchy at Sydney Youth. Murder, infidelity and seduction are rampant, even though none of the cast are older than 24. Don't worry though, it's all just musical comedy.
Tony Award winning musical City of Angels tells the story of a writer caught up in the machinations of Hollywood, while adapting his successful novel into a Film Noir detective flick. Boundaries between life and cinema are entertainingly blurred, as the film action is acted out in parallel, complete with re-writes.
