What a glorious feelin’, I’m happy again! Chichester Festival Theatre’s Singin’ In The Rain is coming back to London in 2020, with the Olivier Award-nominated production lined up for a five-week run at Sadler’s Wells in the summer.
Having begun life at Chichester Festival Theatre in summer 2011, the production transferred to the West End’s Palace Theatre in February 2012. Scores of acclaim, four Olivier Award nominations, and more than 750,000 visitors later, the show is heading back to London.
And as if that’s not enough, the production will also reunite original director Jonathan Church with its choreographer, Andrew Wright. Adam Cooper, who starred in the West End, returns to the role of Don Lockwood, the silent movie star who’ll have to front up to sudden changes.
Singin’ In The Rain will play at Sadler’s Wells for five weeks, between Friday 24 July and Sunday 30 August 2020.
The show follows the famous and much-loved Don, who is in a well-publicised ‘romance’ with co-star Lina Lamont. But change is in the air for Hollywood – films where actors actually talk, sing, and even dance, are on the way. Can Don and Lina make the transition, and will chorus girl Kathy Seldon fulfil her dream of stardom?
The show features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘Em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and, of course, Singin’ In The Rain.
Get your umbrellas out and get ready: tickets go on general sale on Monday 8 July.
