Storyline

When Gene Kelly was first booked for the show he said to the writers that he didn't just want to do, 'Singing in the Rain'. The writers turned Gene's request into a running gag for the show, and much to Kermits dismay, Gene Kelly insists on just passively watching the Muppet's do their "thing" from the wings of the stage. But of course, the Muppets get their way in the end, and Gene Kelly performs a few numbers while backstage with Kermit and the gang, including the song 'Singing in the Rain'. Written by brtndr
