On June 21, the historic Hotel El Palace Barcelona, preserving the elegance and sumptuousness of the 20s, welcomed a whole group of characters from the roaring 20s or "crazy 20s" to present the new musical by Àngel Llàcer and Manu Guix with the production company Nostromo Live: Cantando Bajo la Lluvia.

Àngel Llàcer in one of his interviews, assures that Singing in the Rain is a musical that everyone who wants to have a good time will like ... families, groups of friends, couples ...
Considered one of the best musical films of all time, Singing in the Rain, tells a love story set in the emergence of talkies in Hollywood, which shows all the formal elegance and aesthetics characteristic of the 20s.
A story full of references and cinephile winks that became a classic reference of the 50s, whose anthem is the famous song “Singin’ in the rain ”worldwide known.
“I really like to premiere and to have the concept of a great musical in Barcelona”, Àngel Llàcer affirmed in his splendid presentation of the musical comedy Singing in the rain.
And if an adaptation of the great 1952 classic was not enough, the adaptation that arrives at the Tivoli next September promises to be a great great musical. Following the script written in 1983 by Betty Comden and Adolph Green that adapts the film classic for musical theater, Singing in the Rain will offer us a cinematic love story that deals with current issues such as adaptation to change.
This is why Llàcer, Guix and Benedited claim to have created a show that reflects both the magic of the classic and the essence of today. The original story follows the adaptation efforts of 1920s Hollywood professionals and artists during the transition from silent to talkies. In the words of Llàcer himself, adapting is a sign of intelligence, and this is exactly what Cantando in the Rain does, a musical that aims to retain the nostalgia and essence of the original with touches that adapt it to the 21st century.
