I took Mom to watch the West End production of Singing in the Rain at MBS and boy, did we both enjoy it. Maybe I am an old soul but I love the old school musicals.
Sure, mom and I are familiar with and adore the Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds movie version but the stage version has its own charm.
We also enjoyed watching the front rows frantically putting on their supplied raincoats when the Singing in the Rain number happened. Every deliberate kick of the dancers sent water splashing into the audience, and there were squeals of delight.
Once I got back to the car, I added both the movie and stage versions of the music into my Apple Music collection. Why don't they make music like this any more?
The wife had to put up with with me singing "You are My Lucky Star" and "Good Morning" for the next few days.
Singing in the Rain is on from 9 Jul till 2 Aug 2015, at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
