Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles
Arguably the most popular and influential rock band of all time, the Beatles have spawned a glut of imitators across the globe. Yet very few tributes play with such meticulous detail, sport such lofty credentials, or become runaway Broadway sensations like Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. The act—a fine-tuned, all-encompassing chronological journey through the annals of Beatleology—has gained a worldwide fan base, endorsements from Epiphone (makers of the John Lennon and George Harrison signature guitar line) and Ludwig (makers of Ringo Starr’s drums and immortality serum), as well as critical accolades, including the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music Revue.
Featuring a cast of mop-top dopplegängers drawn from the premier '70s Fab Four Broadway show Beatlemania and its silver-screen counterpart, Beatlemania: The Movie, Rain takes audiences from the band’s very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through their rooftop sayonara, with an ear for detail and visual panache. The performers deliver spot-on vocals and copycat musicianship played on vintage instruments, all enhanced by multimedia projections of historical footage and costume changes that signal the transition from suit-and-tie pretty boys to shaggy psychedelic vanguards. But the spectacle would be nothing without the music, a two-hour set designed to engage all generations of Beatlemaniacs. The repertoire of 200 classics includes staples such as “Hey Jude” and “Yesterday,” as well as songs the Beatles themselves never performed live, most notably “Strawberry Fields Forever.”
