Though it is inconsistent in performance quality, the Beck production of “City of Angels,” gives theater buffs an opportunity to see this seldom-done musical with a fine display of technical effects.
This is a show that tries too hard to do too much in too long of a time. A judicial use of editing of scenes and songs as well as the elimination of the overbearing incidental music during times of dialog would go a long way in improving the effort. Not a bad show per say but one in need of improvement.To see a full review of this show, read Mark Horning's blog.
Hats off to Beck and Spence for taking on this challenge, and to the performers who damn near make it all work.
