Singin’ in the Rain @ Wyllyotts Theatre…

It was lovely to see Roger perform last night in Singin’ in the Rain at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Hertfordshire’s glitzy Potters Bar.   

Based on the film, Singin’ in the Rain is, of course, a fantastic musical with many great songs. Good Morning, Make ‘Em Laugh, and the title track were all stand-outs last night.   

It’s a very funny piece too, telling the story of the talkies coming to Hollywood. The boy meets girl love story cleverly hides the digs at Tinsel Town’s cut and thrust.   

Lena “ What's wrong with the way I talk?” Lamont is one of cinemas great creations. Vain, silly, ambitious - she steals every scene.   

Last night, the whole cast put on an amazing performance, the singing was great, there were laughs aplenty, some lovely costumes, and some great tap-dancing too.   

A fun night out - the cast and orchestra all punching well above their collective weight.
