Coming in October to the stage at the Rossiya Theater in October, Singing In the Rain
is a story all about the dizzying successes who became legend. This stage adaptation of the 1952 movie of the same name, is an inspiring story of famous Hollywood actors who graced the silver screen in the heyday of motion pictures.
Set in Hollywood of the 1930’s, back when silent films were all the rage, Singing In the Rain is about the onset of sound in film, and the wonderment audiences were inspired by. The lead characters, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, transport the audience today into a world where entertainment truly took on a dynamism “unheard of” before. The comic tension of Lockwood, putting up with the narcissism and lack of musical talent of his silent film partner, is the catharsis everyone indentifies with. As for the revived production of this Broadway hit, the 12 tons of water dumped onto the stage at each performance is showers talented singers and dancers magically.
One of the stars of the famous film version, award-winning actress Debbie Reynolds had this to say about the stage production in Moscow:
“The news that Russia will put the musical "Singing in the rain", led me to a complete delight! I'm sure that the Russian audience will appreciate and love music and humorous story! I always remember shooting the film "Singing in the rain" with great pleasure!”
