WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
SINGIN' IN THE RAIN has been hailed as "Blissful!" by the New York Times and "Pure joy...hugely engaging!" by The Telegraph. The musical, based on the 1952 film starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, is named the #1 Greatest Movie Musical of all time by the American Film Institute and called "The happiest movie musical ever made!" by The New York Timesand "A transcendent experience!" by the Chicago Sun-Times. The original London production opened in 1983, followed by the Broadway premiere in 1985. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN has been nominated for two Tony Awards including Best Book of a Musical, and features music by Nacio Herb Brown, lyrics by Arthur Freed, with the book adapted by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Set in glitzy, glamorous Hollywood in the roaring '20s, this lighthearted and funny tale centers on Don Lockwood (Broadway's Tony Yazbeck), a film star who finds love while navigating the ever-changing world of showbiz. Don and Lina Lamont are the toast of Tinseltown and the biggest silent stars at Monumental Pictures, but when their latest film is set to be a "talkie," the studio executives need to find a way to conceal Lina's terrible voice. Up-and-coming starlet Kathy Seldon, Don's new girlfriend, is hired to provide the on-screen voice for Lina but complications quickly arise. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is a feel-good love story that features exhilarating choreography and a glorious score including "Good Morning," "Make "em Laugh," "Moses Supposes" and "Singin' in the Rain."
