Happy Musical Monday! Singin' in the Rain (3/30)
Happy Monday Everyone!
Our first Musical Monday is going to be over one of the most well-recognized musicals in the United States.
Singin' In the Rain is about 3 actors in the 1920's as they transition from silent movies to "talkies". The three main characters, Don Lockwood, Kathy Seldon, and Cosmo Brown plan together to make their new movie, The Dancing Cavalier, a roaring success.
The turning point in the musical where the ideas come together is with the song "Good Morning" where the three main characters stay up all night to come up with the idea for The Dancing Cavalier.
