A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title “Gaslight” and filmed twice, “Angel Street” tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th century London. All appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility; however, Mr. Manningham is slowly driving his devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. As the action unfolds, the author builds and sustains some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.
