The refreshing romantic comedy Singin’ in the Rain – the stage version of one of MGM’s most celebrated films – pours onto the Beef & Boards stage through May 26.
Set in 1920s Hollywood, this classic is the story of Don Lockwood, a famous actor in silent films. His success is shared by his co-star, Lina Lamont, but – at least for Don -- their romance is only for the screen. When they star in their first talking movie, Lina’s grating voice causes studio executives to arrange for the voice of the beautiful young actress, Kathy Selden, to be used instead. When Lina finds out, she is furious. While Don has eyes for the lovely Kathy, Lina isn’t about to be pushed aside – on screen, or off.
Memorable songs include “Good Morning,” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” and the title tune.
