The critically acclaimed award-winning Chichester Festival Theatre production Singing in the Rain which stars Maxwell Caulfield as RF Simpson and Faye Tozer as Lina Lamont, comes to Wales Millennium Centre from 3 December 2013 to 5 January 2014, as part of a nationwide tour.
“I’ve been blown away by the audience reaction, while the audience have been blown away by the quality of the show.” Actress and Steps star Faye Tozer recently told Andy Howells , “They’ve really gone all out to make it a visual spectacular and I’m just very proud to be part of it “
A show that all the family can enjoy, Singing in the Rain tells the story of Don Lockwood, a silent movies 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.
“That period the costumes are just a dream the fashion at the time,” says Faye, “the colours, the romance, the whole thing. Its a real delicious luxurious era when Hollywood had so much money and an exciting time for film as well.”
The show features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singing in the Rain.
