ZACH Theatre celebrates its 85th Anniversary season with one of the greatest and most beloved classic musicals, brought to the stage in a new splashy, song and dance valentine to the Golden Age of movie musicals. For the first time in Austin, this production is sure to a smile on your face and a spring in your step. With book by award winning writers Betty Comden and Adolf Green, lyrics by Arthur Freed, and music by Nacio Herb Brown, the joyous score features well-known songs like “Good Morning,” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” and the favorite, “Singin’ in the Rain” which will soar with ZACH’s full orchestra. What a glorious feeling, I’m happy again!
