Exuberantly choreographed, packed with hummable tunes and with a first act finale that’s hard to beat, Jonathan Church’s stage version of the famous 1952 film starring Gene Kelly is guaranteed to swoosh away your worries and send you home happy.

Set in Hollywood in 1927 when the talkies were poised to take over the silent screen, it’s a feel-good story of love and romance and a talented unknown triumphing when the star (Katherine Kingsley’s squawking Lena Lamont) can’t hack it.

Scarlett Strallen makes a spirited, sweet-voiced Kathy who falls for Don Lockwood (Lena’s glamorous co-star) and saves the day. Daniel Crossley nearly steals the show as his agile sidekick Cosmo. And, as Don, an elegant Adam Cooper sings, taps and proves that he hasn’t forgotten his years of training with the Royal Ballet.

But this is a show that almost stands or falls by the title number, and as litres of water swamp the stage and Cooper jumps joyously in the puddles, showering the front stalls as he twirls, there’s no doubt that it makes the grade.
