The PIT Collective Presents Tony Award-Winning Show City of Angels Coming to Vancouver July 2017

This summer, Vancouver will play host to the Canadian premiere of the Broadway musical “City of Angels.” Plans include a limited engagement run, July 8-17th, at Granville Island’s Performance Works in Vancouver.  This Tony award-winning musical comedy is an homage to film noir that delightfully satirizes the glamour and decadence of 1940s Hollywood.

Performing and producing the show is the Putting It Together (PIT) Collective, a group of local Vancouver artists, featuring a wide variety of talent that’s been on Broadway, in hit TV shows and feature films.  They’re proud to be part of Vancouver’s global reputation as a hub of talent and creativity.

To cover their production costs and make the show a reality, the PIT Collective has launched an Indiegogo campaign, rewarding supporters with the ability to pre-order premium tickets and gain access to a variety of perks ranging from exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and videos to exciting VIP experiences.   Several perks offer the opportunity for you to join PIT Collective in giving back to the community by sponsoring tickets to local youth theater programs such as Project Limelight, an organization that provides free access to theater experiences to kids who live in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side Neighborhood.

To get involved, check out their Indiegogo campaign, which will run now through 3/1.
