The Baton Rouge Little Theater, or BRLT, will open “City of Angels” on March 8, at 7:30 p.m. Under the direction of Keith Dixon, the production will run through March 24.

Swinging, sexy, smart, and funny; a jazzy Hollywood musical! An ingenious spoof of 1940s Hollywood and whodunit films. “City of Angels” has side-by-side stories about the ‘real’ world of a detective fiction writer and the ‘reel’ world of a detective fiction writer and the ‘reel’ world of his fictional gumshoe hero. One balances romance and rewrites, while the other slinks through a film noir netherworld of thugs and femmes fatales. Winner of tons of Tony Awards, it's a witty detective thriller with a jazzy score that really kills.

Pay what you can night is Thursday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. All donations are accepted, but a $5 donation is suggested. Also, a sign language interpretation performance will be Sunday, March 17, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $27 individually and $23 for a group of ten or more. Student tickets are available with proof of student identification for $14 each. This production is rated PG-13.
