Singing In The Rain Review

We often visit london as we live so close and we love the theatre and we find london guide a great way of finding tickets and hotel to all the West End Shows.

We were given 2 tickets to see the new show Singing in the Rain, here is what we thought.

The costumes were lovely, the ensemble girls especially had some lovely little dresses and Scarlett Strallen who played Kathy had some beautiful gowns!
The set was very cleverly designed, the water that they danced in and they poured onto the actors was obviously a real highlight to the performance but also the fact they showed the black and white movies which appeared to be on a large projector was fab!

I thought the cast were wonderful, I especially enjoyed Daniel Crossleys performance as Cosmo, the number “make em laugh” was especially brilliant! He was a great dancer and singer with very good comedic skills! Scarlett Strallen was very lovely as Kathy, she danced and sang it beautifully and worked really well with Adam Cooper who played Don Lockwood, again his performance was great, wonderful dancer and to my surprise a great singer too! His solo of “singing in the rain” was great, although I don’t think the people on the first few rows would agree as they were soaked!!! I have to also mention Katherine Kingsley who played the the role of Lena Lamont, she was fabulous very very funny and a very very annoying voice!!!

The whole show was wonderfully put together with great choreography and a great cast! The highlight has to be the finale of “Singing in the rain” where the whole cast are back on stage complete with umbrellas, hats and a lot of rain!!!! A brilliant night at the theatre!
