About The Show

“When these three are together, Nicky, Courtney, and Angie, we are presented with wit, presence, and a hope that these three will achieve their aspirations. We are on their side…..I wasn’t the only one enjoying myself. The entire audience was in the pockets of the actors, foot tapping and wriggling in their seats in unison with the songs. What a pleasure to end my long day with this wonderful show. The only question I had left at the end, as we all exited out to Santa Monica Boulevard, was “What am I going to do with all this newfound energy?” Javier Ronceros,


After a sold-out run at the 2023 Hollywood Fringe Festival, the new musical “Nicky and the Angels” will play six Sunday night performances at the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks, at 7:00 P.M. April 14 – May 19, 2024.


Slightly nostalgic and completely heartfelt, “Nicky and the Angels” tells the story of teenage theater kids Nicky, Courtney and Angie, falling in love with musicals, the big bright world outside of high school, and the wrong people in the spring of 1982 in Los Angeles. What they will discover about themselves and each other will change everything.


“Nicky and the Angels” has a story and book by Jillana Devine-Knickel, who will also direct. Music and lyrics are by Ali Mandelbaum. The Musical Director is Xander Ambrose. Choreography is by Dr. Claire Anne “Daanee” Touchstone. Macy E. Kunke is the Production Stage Manager.


The cast includes Adam Levia (Angel in “Rent” at the Chance Theater in Anaheim, NBC pilot “Isabel”), Carmina Garay (“Diary of a Future President,” “The Conners,” “PEN15”) Katie Silverman (“Grey Gardens” at The Ahmanson Theatre, “Mayans MC,” “PEN15,” “The New Girl”), Sam Brock (“A Midsummer Night’s Dream and “A Perfect Ganesh” at Theatricum Botanicum), Dalton Maltz (“Tommy and the Brothers” at the Wren Theater, “Assassins” at the Lyric Hyperion) and Ben Larson (“Hit the Wall,” “Carrie: The Musical” and “The Normal Heart” at USC School of Dramatic Arts).
