It is based on the 1952 film of the same name, which will celebrate the 60th anniversary of its release next year, and starred Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds.
Don Lockwood is a silent movies star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and even a well-publicised ‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk…and sing…and dance.
The West End cast will be led by Adam Cooper as Don Lockwood, Daniel Crossley as Cosmo Brown, Scarlett Strallen as Kathy Seldon and Katherine Kingsley as Lina Lamont, who will reprise their roles from the original Chichester production.
Singin’ in the Rain will feature popular songs from the film like Make ‘em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singin’ in the Rain, with choreography by Andrew Wright.
Singin’ in the Rain will open at the Palace Theatre on 4th February 2012 and is initially booking to 29th September 2012. Information on group rates will follow shortly.
