Singin' in the Rain

Based on the 1952 MGM Film
Screenplay and Adaptation by BETTY COMDEN and ADOLF GREEN
Lyrics by ARTHUR FREED
Music by NACIO HERB BROWN
Original Choreography by GENE KELLY and STANLEY DONEN

Originally Produced on Broadway by Maurice Rosenfeld, Lois F. Rosenfield and Cindy Pritzker, Inc.

Plot Synopsis

The story begins in 1927 at the Graumann's Chinese Theater Premiere of Monumental Pictures' The Royal Rascal. Fans are gathered to catch a glimpse of thier favourite celebrities as leading film columnist, Dora Bailey, hosts a live radio broadcast in front of the theatre. Finally, the film's stars, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, arrive with Don's life-long friend, Cosmo Brown. We see a flashback as Don tells Dora the story of his "success".

As he is avoiding mobbing fans, Don meets Kathy Selden. When Monumental Pictures moves to talking pictures, Kathy not only becomes the voice of Lina Lamont, but replaces her as Don's leading lady.

While this is happening, not everything runs perfectly smoothly. But, in the end, true love prevails and everyone, except Lina, lives happily ever after.
