Singin' In The Rain
Witness a stage adaptation of one of the most loved musical films of all time, as Jonathan Church’s acclaimed production is all set to bring back the comedy, romance, and glamor of the original! With Adam Cooper reprising the lead role and Andrew Wright’s spirited and inventive choreography, the production promises to make a splash (literally).
Why Watch Singin' In The Rain
Based on the popular 1952 film of the same name, Singin’ in the Rain is a romantic comedy that depicts Hollywood of the 1920s. Despite being only a modest hit when it was first released, the film went on to be accorded legendary status by critics. Currently, it is often considered the greatest musical films ever made, and one of the best films to come out of America.
Director Jonathan Church's staging is splendid, and he brilliantly captures the subtlety and wit of the original that made it so popular. Renowned English actor, dancer and theatre director, Adam Cooper is all set to reprise his role as Dan Lockwood. Cooper is an Olivier Award nominee and was in charge of the choreography for the 2004 production. With Andrew Wright’s choreography, Cooper does a stellar job transitioning from the numerous moods and modes of dance. Cooper brings in the much-needed nonchalance and charm of the main character, leaving no doubt in the mind of the audience that he is the star of the show.
Each song bursts with incredible energy, and the irrepressible joy can be seen within the characters. Simon Higlett’s set design includes an astonishing 14000 litres of water for each performance, to bring Wright’s vision to fruition. The musical features some of the crowd favourite hits, including ‘Moses Supposes’, ‘Make ‘em Laugh’, and the defining ‘Singin’ in the Rain.’
