Singin' in the Rain

One of the best things about living in London is the theatre. Although as a Londoner I don't go nearly as often as I should do so when I was offered a pair of tickets to see Singin' in the Rain at the Palace Theatre I jumped at the chance to go.

The show was amazing. For a few hours my friend and I were transported out of London and to 1920s Hollywood for a tale of singing, dancing and - you've guessed it - rain! I did wonder how the famous "Singin' in the Rain" scene would translate to the stage and it did not disappoint, seeing the stage transform into a thunderstorm was pretty special - be warned if you are sitting in the front few rows for this show as you may get a little wet. Luckily our seats were in the Dress Circle so we avoided the inclement weather but still had a great view.

The costumes were amazing too, I love 1920s fashion and the attention to detail was brilliant. I'd definitely recommend the show for a fun, feelgood night out.

Are you a fan of the theatre? What was the last show you saw?

  7. It sounds amazing Lily, you're so lucky. That coat is stunning, very glam! x

  8. I saw this show ages ago when it was on tour - it was so good so I'm really glad it's come to London now!

    Glad you enjoyed it, the last show I saw was a one-man auto-biographical show about shakespeare by Roger Rees. It was strange but awesome! Every time I go to the theatre I keep thinking 'I must go more often'!

  9. I'm going soon and this has made me even more excited!


  10. Singing in the rain is one of my favourite films! Glad you enjoyed it. I think the last thing I saw was Phantom of the Opera last year which was amazing :) x

  11. I love going to the theatre but I haven't been for ages!! I think the last show I saw was sister act in new York and unfortunately it wasn't very good!
