Jonathan Church’s new production of Singin’ in the Rain transfers to the Palace Theatre following its critically acclaimed, sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre. The 1952 MGM film of the same name - which celebrates the 60th anniversary of its release in 2012 - starred Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, and is considered one of the most beloved and enduring movie musicals of all time. It tells the story of Don Lockwood, a silent movie 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, sing and dance. The musical features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singin’ in the Rain. The cast for this West End production is led by Adam Cooper as Don Lockwood, Daniel Crossley as Cosmo Brown, Scarlett Strallen as Kathy Seldon and Katherine Kingsley as Lina Lamont, with Michael Brandon as RF Simpson and Sandra Dickinson as Dora Bailey/Miss Dinsmore, all of whom will reprise their roles from the original Chichester production.
