Although the production is already sold out, Baz Bamigboye has revealed 500 tickets a week will be on sale during the run from December. City Of Angels runs between 5th December 2014 and 7th February 2015.

The musical comedy is set in Broadway in the 1940s with two plots: a Hollywood comedy and a detective drama involving the world of a writer trying to turn his book into a screenplay and the world of the fictional film. It is a homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures in the 1940s. 

Directed by Michael Blakemore, City of Angels ran on Broadway from 1989 to 1992 winning six Tony Awards in 1990. It was first performed in London's West End in 1993 with Blakemore again directing and Roger Allam as Stone, Martin Smith as Stine and Henry Goodman as Buddy Fidler leading the cast. It won the 1994 Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Producers are yet to confirm this gossip.
