New-to-Chicago production Singin' in the Rain

By Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Arthur Freed, Nacio Herb Brown

  • Running Time - 2 hours, 50 minutes with 1 intermission
  • Location - Lyric Opera House

One of the most joyously exhilarating of all movie musicals, now onstage and more magical than ever! Revel in the glamour of Hollywood in the Roaring Twenties, when the “talkies” were taking over from silent films. The romance between matinee idol Don Lockwood and budding actress Kathy Selden, the machinations of squeaky-voiced star Lina Lamont, and the lovable deviousness of Don’s best friend, Cosmo Brown, combine with spectacular dancing and unforgettable songs. It’s pouring—and you, too, will be ready to kick up your heels in the rain!
