Uhh, ik ben een beetje in de war over dit topic. Is het de bedoeling dat dit een nieuwsbericht is over dat deze musical naar Nederland komt? Want in dat geval hoort hij niet in Europese musicals thuis. En daarbij zou ik dit twittergesprek nou niet meteen nieuwswaardig willen noemen.

Stage heeft Singin’ in the Rain wel genoemd in hun vijfjarenplan, dus het zou me niks verbazen.

In mei ga ik naar Londen maar had deze musical volledig over het hoofd gezien. Maandag kwam ik er achter en had nog een avondje vrij dus meteen maar geboekt. En inderdaad, geen You Might Get Wet Seats 😊

Eerste recensies zijn overigens positief. Telegraph geeft 5 sterren.

De recensies zijn erg positief ...

Michael Coveney
Whatsonstage.com
★★★★

“Last summer’s Chichester Festival Theatre pick-me-up has duly stormed the Palace Theatre … Ebony Molina is every bit as jazzy and bewitching as was Cyd Charisse in the film … Jonathan Church’s production starts a little shakily with a too busy prologue during the overture … and the arrival of guests … down the centre aisle only reinforces a lack of focus … Cooper’s line, agility and charm carry the show, while Crossley is a delightful foil … Scarlett Strallen is a sweetly accurate and demure Debbie Reynolds clone, singing beautifully, and the statuesque Katherine Kingsley drives you suitably mad … Her second act song, ‘What’s Wrong With Me?’ … Kingsley just buries it alive … The rain at the end of each act is tremendous … The highlight of Simon Higlett’s superb design and Tim Mitchell’s lighting is the irresistible explosion of pastel suits, flashing legs and Manhattan skyline in ‘Broadway Melody’ … Not too many liberties are taken with Betty Comden and Adolph Green’s screenplay, and each song of Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed is greeted with an exhalation of pleasure in the audience … Andrew Wright’s choreography is sharp, funny and detailed … Notably good support performances from Michael Brandon … and Peter Forbes as the flustered director Roscoe Dexter.”

Charles Spencer
Daily Telegraph
★★★★★

“The show offers almost three hours of continuous pleasure … If Singin’ in the Rain lacks the beguiling subtlety and sly wit of that new movie, it more than makes up for it with its broad buoyant humour, generosity of spirit and delightfully tuneful score … Betty Comden and Adolph Green’s script is full of great gags and moments of deeper feeling ... The cast is terrific … Cooper brings a mixture of charm, humour, nonchalance, and spectacularly fleet feet to the role of Don Lockwood ... He sings with great feeling too and exudes the kind of charisma that can light up a whole theatre. Scarlett Strallen combines sweet innocence with a touch of poignancy … Daniel Crossley offers terrific comic value in the best-friend role … A blissfully funny performance from Katherine Kingsley … Kingsley’s ability to combine pathos with vicious malevolence strikes me as little short of miraculous … the whole show is something of a miracle, not least the spectacular staging of the title number … This is a night of sheer delight.”

Paul Taylor
Independent
★★★★

“The production contains sequences as rapturously enjoyable (the electric choreography is by Andrew Wright) as any I have seen in a stage musical … What mars the show …is that there are places where the desire to do nothing if not knock the audience dead again and again brings in a faintly metallic and driven feel to the proceedings ... Virtuoso song-and-dance can develop a harshness that obscures the heartfelt. In some of the numbers … the astonishing feats of varied tone and dynamics … seamlessly segueing between different modes and moods of dance within the one song, feel like the euphoric outpouring of uncontainable joy from within the characters. But there are other numbers where it feels more like a ‘medley’ and producers’ overkill. So when ‘Good Morning, Good Morning’ is reprised at the start of the second half … it’s comparatively flat because it comes across as emotionally inorganic … I won’t, though, be able to watch Gene Kelly stomping in puddles ever again without feeling too dry and bit excluded. Making a bigger and live splash, Adam Cooper boots great sprays of rain water over the over the stalls in a blissful baptism of theatrical H2O. Enchantingly he becomes like a mischievous little boy in the giddiness of his love … The band pounds out precision playing. Katherine Kingsley though funny, is too much of a drag act for my taste”

Henry Hitchings
Evening Standard
★★★★

“The stage version … can’t eclipse memories of the film. But Jonathan Church’s deft new production, launched at Chichester last year, certainly makes a splash … Writers Betty Comden and Adolph Green introduce a distinctly satirical edge ... There’s also plenty of zest in Nacio Herb Brown’s music and Arthur Freed’s lyrics. The favourite songs are generously rendered: ‘Good Morning’, ‘Moses Supposes’, and of course the title number, during which the front five or six rows of the audience get liberally splattered. This could be irritating, yet actually it’s exhilarating, and the infectious brolly-twirling glee makes a welcome return at the curtain call. Adam Cooper is likeable as Lockwood, with fantastic dance skills. There’s engaging work from Daniel Crossley as pal Cosmo. Katherine Kingsley has an irresistible comic touch as Lina, and Scarlett Strallen radiates warmth as Kathy. There are neat performances in supporting roles notably Michael Brandon as a studio boss, elegant design by Simon Higlett and ingenious video by Ian William Galloway, which draws some of the biggest laughs. It’s crowd-pleasing stuff. The memory of Gene Kelly may not be banished, but this is a buoyant revival, lit up by Andrew Wright’s superlative choreography.”

Patrick Marmion
Daily Mail
★★★★

“Jonathan Church’s production was a huge hit in Chichester last year and it’s looking as good as ever. That alone is no mean feat because this is a technically demanding show … tumultuously choreographed by Andrew Wright … It’s got feelgood factor galore with the added bonus of shameless nostalgia. You simply can’t help but love it. Up to a point that is, because if we’re honest, the show doesn’t offer anything that the film doesn’t. Except that it’s live. And as a live performance it is hugely energising. Adam Cooper as the lead Hollywood star of the story isn’t exactly drenched in Gene Kelly charisma … But he can surely dance, and when his big moment comes he isn’t so much singing and dancing as surfing in the rain … Crossley is an equally accomplished dancer and their tap routines together are a joy … The leading ladies stole the show. Katherine Kingsley…has a singing voice like nails dragged down a blackboard. It takes talent to sound this shocking. But the undisputed star is Scarlett Strallen … She has a voice like mountain spring water and shapely dancing pins to match … The producers have one of the hits of the year.”

Dominic Maxwell
The Times
★★★★

“This is not a flawless adaptation – a sprawling first half needs more vim in its spoken moments, and the central trio of Adam Cooper, Scarlett Strallen and Daniel Crossley can’t challenge the charm of Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor … This is an enjoyable evening, which at its best simply soars … While Cooper earns our respect as a singer and an actor, it’s when this former ballet star dances that he earns our adulation. In the film, the long Broadway Melody sequence is a gorgeous indulgence. Here, it’s the high spot. It…brings the best out of Andrew Wright’s choreography and Cooper’s sinuous frame. Pure joy. But then so is the title tune … Crossley’s set piece, ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’ … Nicely done. After that, three slow songs together cause a slight lull. But then Cooper, Crossley and David Lucas…turn the place wild in the rhythmical interplay of ‘Moses Supposes’ … As the story intensifies … the show becomes an extroverted entity in itself rather than just a nifty pastiche … Katherine Kingsley gives a star-making performance … The show itself is a bit of a fairground ride: a cautious start, and then it’s up and running and you won’t want to think of anything else.”

Mark Shenton voor The Stage

This is a theatre on a roll and artistic director Jonathan Church leads from the front to demonstrate his genuinely populist touch but sure creative strengths with this fizzing, joyous production of the beloved 1952 MGM movie musical that manages, at last, the rare feat of wrestling it away from the memory of the original to provide something distinctive of its own ...  This is the fourth major outing for a stage version of this film in London, after previous stagings were seen at the London Palladium, National and Sadler’s Wells, but easily the best. There’s a triple treat of triple threats in the central trio of Cooper, joined by Daniel Crossley as his sidekick Cosmo and Scarlett Strallen as the girl that Cooper’s Don falls for - each of them is glorious, three times over.

Singin’ in the Rain may be familiar stuff, but this cast bring such warmth and sincerity to it that it is entirely irresistible.

David Benedict voor Variey is iets minder enthousiast

... while there’s undeniable pleasure in watching Adam Cooper’s Don Lockwood dancing in a downpour—and kicking great arcs of water into the delighted front rows—the effect in “Singin’ in the Rain” is more expected than special. Alas, with the exception of Katherine Kingsley’s terrific Lina and Daniel Crossley’s deft Cosmo, the same can be said of the rest of Jonathan Church’s production ...

Throughout the night, the most successful sequences (and characterizations) are those that reinvent the original. “Moses Supposes” is turned from a duet with a vocal coach out of his depth into a zinger of a trio with David Lucas’ coach joyfully seizing his moment. And as is now traditional in the stage version, there is a second-act solo for Lina, alone and perplexed at her dressing table, with “What’s Wrong With Me?”

... Kingsley’s Lina nails her every moment. Both she and Crossley pull off the considerable trick of reminding you of the originals while finding a spin of their own—she constantly works fresh laughs with her accent while he makes Cosmo crisply droll.

...As the plot takes over, the good-heartedness of the endeavor proves persuasive. Yet there’s a niggling sensation that opportunities are being missed with the decision to match expectation rather than to invent. The more exact the copying, the more it underlines the fact that a movie was the perfect medium through which to make a satire about moviemaking. A stage show about moviemaking is always going to be a tougher call

De ‘splash zone’ in het Palace is overigens rij A tot en met E zag ik. Ik zit nog even de afweging te maken om een ‘lokale regenbui’ te trotseren en toch meer vooraan te zitten. Volgens mij heb ik liever de kans dat je wat nat wordt en misschien ook niet, dan achter de premium seats te zitten na rij H 😊

Zijn voor deze show makkelijk op de ‘‘markt’’ kaartjes te krijgen in London of beter vooraf bestellen ?
Vraag me af of als ik via SEE bestel, ik op de dagzelf SEE kaartjes krijg daar, of kaartje met logo van de show?

Over het algemeen krijg je dan kaartjes met het See-logo. Zij sturen de kaartjes naar de kassa. Maar ik heb ook wel eens kaartjes gekocht aan de kassa van her Palace Theatre en toen kreeg ik ook kaarten met het See-logo.

Heerlijke avond gehad in het Palace theater afgelopen week. Zit je op de eerste 5,6 rijen ? Je zult niet misschien nat worden, je word het !!! De acteurs, actrices doen het op het einde erom om zoveel mogelijk met de regen het publiek nat te maken. Een water feestje zullen we maar zeggen. Opvallend veel oudere Engelse bezoekers, maar wat een prachtige voorstelling. Stage Entertainment UK heeft aandelen in de show, hun logo staat in het fotoboek. Of het in Nederland gaat werken betwijfel ik.

Ik ben heel benieuwd naar deze voorstelling en erg leuk om Scarlett Strallen weer een keer te zien spelen die ik destijds vaak in ‘Mary Poppins’ heb gezien. De volgende dag zie ik haar zus Summer in ‘Top Hat’.

Ik heb voor de zekerheid toch maar buiten de ‘splash zone’ geboekt en zit veilig op rij J.

Hoi allemaal,

ik vroeg mij af of iemand de musical Singin’ in the rain al heeft gezien in London. Ik wil als ik naar London ga graag een aantal musicals die ik nog niet heb gezien, zien, maar ik ben nog even aan het bedenken welke er echt de moeite waard zijn.

Singin’ in the Rain is zeker de moeite waard. Maar dat zijn wel meer musicals momenteel. Luxe dus.
