The classic Broadway musical comedy inspired by MGM’s phenomenally successful movie, is also owned by IMM.
Set in 1927, the play tells the story of Hollywood’s first musical, when the screen “found its voice” and left the silent movies behind. Don Lockwood, a silent-movie star, had everything that anyone could have wished for — fame, adulation and a “fling” with his co-star Lina Lamont.
But Hollywood was about to change forever. There were rumors in the studio of a new movie style, where the actors actually talked, sang and danced.
Singin’ in the Rain is packed with surprises, with a story that holds the viewers’ attention from the first to the last minute. We wonder if Don and Lina, with their unique voice, will be able to transition into sound movies? And if the showgirl Kathy Selden will fulfill her dream of becoming a star and win Don’s heart?
The sensational production of IMM, EGG Entretenimento and Raia Produções totals a technical and production team of over 150 people. With impressive setting designs and costumes, the show has an automation system that will make it rain on the stage. The system consists of an 800-meter long flexible pipe and there is no waste: all the water is reused..
The season premières in August at Teatro Santander in São Paulo.
