The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - Chris Boyd

The en­tirety of Jonathan Church’s pro­duc­tion of Sin­gin’ in the Rain looks well-drilled and is ad­mirably tight. The cos­tumes are ex­cel­lent and the sound is par­tic­u­larly good: brassy but rich. Jack Cham­bers as Cosmo has a daz­zling Broad­way smile; his Make ’Em Laugh was ex­pertly per­formed. Kathy (Gre­tel Scar­lett) is a ter­rific dancer with lash­ings of per­son­al­ity and a voice agile enough to sing You are My Lucky Star agree­ably. The main role of Don Lock­wood will be played in Syd­ney by Grant Almi­rall, Rohan Browne and Rob Mal­lett. Syd­ney Lyric, Pir­rama Road, Pyr­mont. Today, 2pm and 8pm. Tick­ets: $80-$122. Book­ings: 136 100 or on­line. Un­til Septem­ber 4. Choir of Trin­ity Col­lege Cam­bridge The Choir of Trin­ity Col­lege, Cam­bridge fea­tures the young voices of 34 un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents (pic­tured) who are care­fully au­di­tioned for what was re­cently named one of Gramo­phone mag­a­zine’s 20 greatest choirs. Choral direc­tor Stephen Lay­ton (pic­tured, cen­tre) leads the choir in this per­for­mance of clas­sics in­clud­ing the 1922 Mass for Un­ac­com­pa­nied Dou­ble Choir
