Following its critically-acclaimed, sold-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, Singin’ in the Rain will be making a big splash at London’s Palace Theatre from 4 February 2012.
It’s the roaring 20’s and silent movie stars are the biggest names in the world. Don Lockwood has it all, a string of hit films and a studio-engineered romance with the most beautiful actress in town. But with the new phenomenon of the talking picture on the way and a chance meeting with a talented young chorus girl set to steal his heart, things are about to change for Don and for Hollywood forever
With all the charm, romance, comedy and tinsel town glamour of one of the world’s best-loved films, Jonathan Church’s brand new production features a glorious score including the classics Good Morning, Make ’em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.
Adam Cooper, Daniel Crossley and Scarlett Strallen are a joyous trio, dazzling in the roles made famous by Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. They lead a multi-talented cast which also features Katherine Kingsley as the hilarious blonde bombshell Lina Lamont, Michael Brandon as the highly-strung studio boss trying to win Hollywood’s biggest prize, the first hit ‘talkie’ and Sandra Dickinson as gossip columnist Dora Bailey.
With stylish, soaring choreography from Andrew Wright and Simon Higlett’s sumptuous set design, Singin’ in the Rain will shower you with everything you could ever want in a hit West End musical!
Hailed by critics as the ultimate feel-good show, Singin in the Rain “genuinely makes you feel better about life” (Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph).
