Singin' in the Rain Review

Chirpy and cheerful, Singin’ In The Rain is the perfect antidote to any rainy day in London. The show captures the golden age of Hollywood and is sure to be around for a long time.

Set in Hollywood, 1927, the show revolves around the made-up studio ‘Monumental Pictures’ and its transition from silent movies to ‘talkies’. Talking pictures become a problem for infamous onscreen couple Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, who unfortunately has a very squeaky, unbearable voice. Don meets aspiring stage actress Kathy who ends up secretly dubbing Lina’s voice to save the sinking ship that is Monumental Pictures’ first talking picture.
