This is a fantastic new musical inspired by true events; bringing to life the little known behind-the-scenes story of the tempestuous love triangle between Hollywood legends Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen and Jeanne Coyne during the creation of the greatest movie musical of all time Singin’ in the Rain. This production marks the UK premier of this Off-Broadway hit.
As Gene Kelly begins work on Singin’ in the Rain, he’s determined to keep both his long-time collaborator Stanley Donen and trusted assistant Jeanne Coyne on set… despite the fact that they’ve just divorced and the torch Coyne carries for Kelly is the reason why. To top it off, their producer is wrestling with the studio for resources, and newly hired co-star Debbie Reynolds can’t even dance.
This unforgettable show features a host of classic hits ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’, ‘Good Morning’, ‘All I Do I Dream of You’ and, of course, ‘Singin’ In The Rain’.
One of the greatest movie musicals of all time is born in this intimate backstage play featuring the classic songs – Make ‘Em Laugh’, ‘Good Morning’, ‘All I Do I Dream of You’ and, of course, ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ – as well as the choreography of that golden MGM era.
A Strictly Theatre Entertainments production.
