City of Angels is a musical comedy with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel, and a book by Larry Gelbart

City of Angels is a musical comedy with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel, and a book by Larry Gelbart. The musical weaves together two plots, the world of a writer trying to turn his book into a screenplay, and the world of the fictional film which he is writing about. The musical is an homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures that rose to prominence in the 1940s.

Lets start with all the songs that are actually included in the Vocal Selections book. They are:

City of Angels Theme
What You Don't Know About Women
With Every Breath I Take
Everybody's Gotta Be Somewhere
Lost and Found
You're Nothing Without Me
Stay With Me
You Can Always Count on Me
Alaura's Theme
L.A. Blues
Funny

A full listing of the included songs wasn't in the Amazon description for this item, so here ya go, without having to research this on other sites. First of all, this is one of my favorite shows. The music is fantastic, challenging, and if a successful production is being done, GO SEE IT! Unfortunately this show is rarely done, and furthermore, it is rarely done well. One of my favorite songs in the show is "The Tennis Song". It's a great duet chock-full of double entendre. Unfortunately this song is not included in the collection. Instead they included songs like "Everybody's Gotta Be Somewhere", and the "City of Angels Theme" (You Only Go Around Once) which feature the Angel City Four, but only providing the melody line, instead of all four parts of the tight harmony group. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I can't argue with the inclusion of any of the other songs, but in my opinion, swap out the group songs with "The Tennis Song", and "All You Have To Do Is Wait", and the selections are perfect. It would be a 5-star item. As is, it's 4 stars at best.

This is such a fabulous musical, and this is an awesome companion book to the musical. It's the full book - what more could a CofA fan want? It is a beautiful book.

I ordered this thinking it was something akin to a director's vocal score with full libretto and all the music. It's most definitely every bit of music from the show, but no libretto.

This will make a nice extention to my Broadway Musical lineup. Just wish it had the libretto too so as not to have to go back & forth between the two books.

Cy Coleman is the best. These songs, and this show, are wonderfully clever with a great jazzy beat. I've seen the show several times and love having the music so that I can sing them.

My husband purchased this to prepare for our community theater production of the musical. He loved listening to it --.

A brilliantly written parody of 1940s film noir movies. The characters are well-written for the most part, the real and movie worlds are clearly defined, and the lyrics blend seamlessly into the script. The only thing that doesn't quite mesh is the character of the girl who seduces Stone. She's a complete cardboard cutout, her only purpose to get Stone into a mess. Her reasons are never addressed. The ending also seems rushed.
Other than that, top-notch, Tony-winning book.

This is one of the great scores of late 20th century musical theatre, with one of the all time great orchestrations, worthy of Nelson Riddle at his best. It is also indisputably one of the smartest sets of lyrics in recent musical theatre memory, with a consistently high standard of humor and poetry. Unfortunately, the vocal score is reduced in a very unpianistic way, which makes it almost totally useless as a performing edition. In a score which is so oriented to the big-band and jazz tradition, there are almost no chord symbols to help the pianist along, which leaves the pianist to the exact voicings indicated in the score. That might be fine, if it weren't for the fact that many of the voicings are really impractical. In several places, it would be physically impossible to play all the notes, and the reduction doesn't make some of the notes smaller to indicate what is essential to the playing. Other times, when the reduction does indicate with smaller notes which parts are unessential, the performance of the notes left over are really unreasonable. For example, on page 71, in the song 'The Buddy System', in measures 54 through 56, the right hand plays the trombone part, a single e held all three bars, while the left hand plays quarter notes that hop up and down four octaves at 152 beats per minute. For the benefit of holding what is essentially a left hand 'thumb-line' for a full 8 beats with the same finger, we lose the sense of where the phrase goes on the piano with two clef changes and the passage, which is really rather simple musically, becomes so confusing and hard to read as to warrant significant practice or rewriting to accomplish it in performance. The accidentals are all musically accurate throughout the piece, but chord symbols would help any working pianist play the fast swing sections much more accurately and idiomatically. This is admittedly an extremely complicated score, with a lot of nuances, but the reduction makes it unnecessarily one of the most difficult scores in the world to play, I would say even more difficult than Candide, West Side Story or Night Music, which aren't walks in the park. And for a pianist who is actually going to play and help a singer along, the brainpower required to muddle through the score will make it impossible to really listen to the singer properly. Get it for the songs in the right key, but if you plan on playing it, give yourself a LOT of prep time.

(Incidentally, the piano reduction is by Dale S. Kugel, who did a much better job on the Beaumont version of 'Anything Goes. I don't know why this one is so much less readable/playable)
I first heard of City of Angels after hearing Anthony Warlow's recoridng of 'You're Nothing Without Me'. I bought the CD to hear more from the musical. I instantly fell in love with the soundtrack, then sought the libretto to find out what happens in between.
As soon as I started reading this, i couldn't put it down. I had no idea what to really expect, and it's the first book that i've laughed out loud while reading.
In this book, you get Larry Gelbart's words and David Zippel's lyrics. The best way to compliment this book is to also get the OB Cast Recording to really get a feel for Cy Coleman's wonderful music.
