Herndon, VA / Washington, D.C. – NextStop Theatre Company opened the great American Musical “Singin’ in the Rain” on Saturday, May 25. Guided by the vision and direction of Producing Artistic Director, Evan Hoffmann, NextStop’s production is a wildly inventive re-imagining of the mega-musical, with only a cast of eight. The production stars Wood Van Meter, Robert Mintz and Morgan Kelleher, with Carolyn Burke, Duane Monahan, Ethan Van Slyke, Melrose Pyne Anderson and Elizabeth Spikes. The Music Direction is by NextStop favorite, Elisa Rosman, with choreography by Robert Mintz.
Critical reviews are coming in with high praise:
“This is a show that puts a spring in your feet and a hum in your head. You’ll walk out with a glorious feeling, as if Singin’ in the Rain truly is the nectar that banishes all the bad and ugly from a day, a week, a year, or a life. NextStop aims for the heart on this one and sticks the landing.” – DC Theatre Scene
“The ensemble cast is so uniformly strong that it’s difficult to pick any standouts. Wood Van Meter brings the charm and charisma that’s essential to the role of Don Lockwood, while Morgan Kelleher effuses both spirit and sweetness as Kathy Selden, and the two have effortless chemistry. Robert Mintz, doing double duty as choreographer and performer, is perfectly cast as rubber-faced comic sidekick Cosmo Brown. Carolyn Burke tears with gusto into the part of malicious, squeaky-voiced Lina Lamont.” – DC Metro Theater Arts
