by Oliver Oliveros - Jul 28, 2015

When compared to SUNSET BOULEVARD,which follows the same classic film-to-stage pedigree as SINGIN' IN THE RAINand tackles the same dilemma of making the transition from silent films to talkies in the 1920s -albeit of psychological melodrama in genre compared to the latter's rollicking parody -SUNSET BOULEVARDhad big stars of stage and screen who headlined West End and Broadway. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN did not delve into such stunt casting from the onset -unless you consider Tommy Steele, who originated the role of Don Lockwood in the West End, as big as Elvis Presley or Gene Kelly, the silver screen's original Lockwood.

With MTW's latest revival specifically, director/choreographer Jon Engstrom has helmed a joyful production worth experiencing, whether it's your first or hundredth time. And, yes, it rains on stage... and it's a sight to behold! (more...)

To those newer generation theatre and movie fans who do not remember 1952's blockbuster hit filmSingin' in the Rain, directors Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly, screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green and costars Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds all contributed to making it the smash that it was... and still is. The zany lightweight hit transferred to the stage in the early 80s and showed the craziness that may have happened when the big movie studios were transitioning fromsilentstotalkiesin the late 20s.
