The beloved romantic comedy Singin’ in the Rain is already a huge success for Maltz Jupiter Theatre's Box Office sales, so don't wait for the weather man report or even another review. Pick up that smart phone and ask siri to call Maltz Jupiter Theatre for tickets to Singin’ in the Rain. The dazzling musical rains from January 10, 2013 through January 27, 2013.
"This year marks the 60th anniversary of the classic MGM film that inspired the musical. Singin' in the Rain follows silent movie star Don Lockwood who has everything he could ever want: fame, adulation and even a well-publicized romance with his co-star Lina Lamont. But hilarity ensues when a new kind of film alters everything: the kind of film where actors talk, sing... and even dance!" Maltz Jupiter Theatre.
Singin’ in the Rain has splashy song-and-dance numbers sprinkled with the high-energy classic musical storyline that also features glorious songs such as “Good Morning” and “Make ‘Em Laugh,” as well as the show-stopping title number, “Singin’ In the Rain,” complete with an onstage rainstorm.
Lauren Blackman as Kathy Seldon is the star of this production of Singin’ in the Rain. Her voice is smooth, sexy and brings magic to the sound of film or this live MGM style musical. Emily Stockdale is Lina Lamont the nazal talking, singing through the nose silent film star. Stockdale is cute, lovable and irritating as the role is written to be.
Nathan Meyer (Production Tenor) has the best male vocals and best solo in the show singing "Beautiful Girls". David Girolmo (R.F Simpson) is the most believable role as the studio executive. Buddy Reeeder gets the Theatre Chat highlight of the show with the intricate clear tap sounds.
Brian Shepard as Cosmo Brown brings out the comedy expected from the role. The storm is Curt Dale Clark as Don Lockwood, his voice hits the notes, his feet hit the steps but you never believe he is in love or buy into the fact that he is a huge super film star. The magic is the rain, the costumes and this MGM classic musical brought to life on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre stage.
“This is the first time in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s history that we are creating a full rainstorm onstage, and the effects will be dazzling,” said the Theatre’s producing artistic director, Andrew Kato. “We are delighted to be bringing such a magical musical to life, right here in Jupiter.”
Theatre patrons seated in the first four rows – or designated “splash zone” – will be given complimentary ponchos prior to each performance to protect their clothing from the possibility of being splashed.
Director and choreographer Marc Robin, who last directed the Carbonell-nominated musical The Sound of Music has spread the rain effect over the entire stage. The golden age of movie musicals comes alive with an eight-piece orchestra, as well as the debut of three black-and-white mini-films, seen in the creation stages and also screened onstage as part of the musical.
