BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN Tap Happy Film Classic Delightfully Reimagined Photo BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN Tap Happy Film Classic Delightfully Reimagined
by Frank Benge - Oct 4, 2017

Who isn't familiar with SINGIN' IN THE RAIN? The classic MGM film musical is arguably a perfect film musical, full of great songs, amazing dancing and memorable characters. Setting out to put this film on stage is a monumental task that requires a faithful enough recreation that it doesn't disappoint a legion of fans, yet has to be it's own original stage creation. Now playing on ZACH Theatre's Topfer Stage is a delightful version that manages to pay just the right amount of tribute while being thrillingly entertaining in its own right.
