Jonathan Church’s Olivier Award nominated production is set to return to London next year for a limited season.
It has been confirmed that the Chichester Festival Theatre production directed by Jonathan Church will play at Sadler’s Wells for a limited five week season from the 24th July 2020.
Meanwhile, it has also been announced that Adam Cooper will reprise his role as Don Lockwood, having gained great acclaim when he originated the role at both the Chichester Festival Theatre and London’s Palace Theatre.
This production of Singin’ in the Rain opened at Chichester Festival Theatre in summer 201. It then transferred to the Palace Theatre in the West End in February 2012, where it received huge critical acclaim and four Olivier Award nominations.
After its run at Sadler’s Wells, the production will then return to Japan – the third time the production has played in the country, playing in Tokyo from September 2020.
Don Lockwood is a silent movie star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and a well-publicised ‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk … and sing … and dance. Can Don and the uniquely voiced Lina make the transition, and will chorus girl Kathy Seldon fulfil her dream of stardom and capture Don’s heart along the way?
The musical features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed as well as original screenplay and adaptations by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The creative team for the production includes direction by Jonathan Church, choreography by Andrew Wright, design by Simon Higlett and lighting by Tim Mitchell.
Singin’ in the Rain will play at Sadler’s Wells from the 24th July until the 30th August 2020.
