Good morning everyone! Yesterday I went to Singin’ in the rain the Musical at the Palace Theatre in London. This is a lovely and funny musical filled with happy songs and great dancing! I especially loved this dancing sequence…

I would advice you to get front row seats, because they will splash water on you during the show! For those of you who love romance (I know we all do!) there is also love…

And much much more! So pack your bags and head to London! For those of you who don’t know the storyline, here’s a short summary…..

Don Lockwood is a popular silent film star who can barely tolerate his shallow leading lady Lina Lamont. Despite this, their studio Monumental Pictures, links them romantically to increase their popularity. Lina herself is convinced they are in love!

One evening Don meets Kathy Selden who claims to be a stage actress and sneers at undignified accomplishments. She pretends to not know who he is, but later in the musical, she admits that she has known who he is all along. Later, at a party, Selden is at the stage as one of amusement dancers and is very embarrased when she sees Don. Furious at Don’s teasing she throws a cake at him and runs away! After weeks of searching Don finally finds her again and they begin to fall in love. Monumental studios then decides to make talking pictures, however, Lina Lamont has such a horrible voice it needs be replaced by someone. That someone will later become Kathy Selden. I don’t want to reveal everything, but obviously this leads to drama with a very happy ending! Have a good day everybody!
