Tag Archives: Singin’ In The Rain
The Wick’s Singin’ in the Rain, for all of its talent and technical achievements and good cheer, offers too few reasons to experience the stage version of the definitive MGM movie musical on its own merits. It’s such a studied, careful, conservative Xeroxing of the movie that it only occasionally gives way to the woollier possibilities of the stage experience.
Assuredly, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s Singin’ In the Rain is a pleasant, skillfully executed, beautifully produced evening of cotton candy entertainment. The asterisk is that this Singin’ In The Rain has no soul. It’s a funny, diverting, two-dimensional cartoon.
