    About Singin’ in the Rain:

    Screenplay by Betty Comden & Adolph Green, Songs by Arthur Freed & Nacio Herb Brown, Based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc.

    Tap your toes and sing along in this splashy adaptation of the celebrated and beloved film.

    The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ in the Rain. Each unforgettable scene, song, and dance is accounted for, including the show-stopping title number—complete with an onstage rainstorm! Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin’ in the Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.

    Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline—the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, the success of newly-invented “talking pictures” threatens to throw a monkey wrench into a big silent movie studio’s next production, unless Don, his best friend Cosmo, and movie-star-hopeful Cathy can figure out a way to make it sing!
