There are now just 11 weeks left to see the concert event of the summer!  The 2011 Drama Desk Award winning production ofRAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles on Broadway will play its final performance on Broadway Sunday, September 4, 2011 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 W 47th St) after 8 previews and 341 regular performances.  After opening October 26, 2010 at the Neil Simon theatre for a rockin’ 13 week limited engagement where RAIN recouped its initial $2 million investment in only seven weeks, the show re-opened by popular demand at the Brooks Atkinson theatre beginning performances February 8, 2011.

“When we originally opened RAIN at the Neil Simon we were thrilled for the chance to share this successful touring show with the Broadway community,” producer Jeff Parry said. “The opportunity to move theatres and continue playing for an additional seven months at the Brooks Atkinson has exceeded our wildest expectations.  It’s been an incredible journey and we look forward to continuing the North American tour of RAIN as well as launching international engagements in Singapore and Johannesburg this summer.”

Winner of the 2011 Drama Desk for Outstanding Revue, RAIN - A Tribute to The Beatles On Broadway currently stars its original creators Joey Curatolo (vocals, bass, guitar, piano), Joe Bithorn (vocals, lead guitar, guitar synthesizer), Ralph Castelli (vocals, drums, percussion) and Steve Landes (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica).

Together longer than The Beatles themselves, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics that The Beatles never got the chance to play live, this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

Like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right. In addition to members of the original RAIN band, at certain performances the show will also feature the talents of Graham Alexander, Mark Beyer, Joe Bologna, Douglas CoxJim IrizarryAlan LoBoeuf, David LeonMark Lewis, Jimmy PouMac RuffingAndy Sarraf, Chris Smallwood and Tom Teeley.  

The New York Times thinks “The audience is enraptured. They get a chance to sing along, twist and shout, and generally make like swooning teenyboppers from the 1960s as the hits roll by and the endorphins kick in.”  While the New York Post says “RAIN hit’s all the right notes!”  USA Today calls RAIN “A trip down memory lane!” and a “Quick fix of nostalgic cheer!” chimes Entertainment Weekly. RAIN is “guaranteed to raise a smile!” states the Star-Ledger, and TimeoutNY Kids agrees that “As John Lennon would say, it’s a great way for kids and adults to come together!”

Tickets for RAIN range from $25 - $120 (including a $2 facility fee) and can be purchased by visiting the Brooks Atkinson box office (256 W 47th St), online. The performance schedule is as follows: Tuesday and Thursday at 7PM; Wednesday, Friday, Saturday at 8PM with a 2pm matinee on Wednesday and Saturday; Sunday at 3PM.  

The US national tour of RAIN is currently scheduled through spring 2012.  For full tour schedule and ticket information for the tour and the Broadway production please visit www.RainTribute.com

RAIN is presented on Broadway by Annerin Productions; MagicSpace Entertainment; Nederlander Presentations, Inc; Sony/ATV and RAIN.
