The Rainmaker

Before its staging at American Blues Theater, The Rainmaker was first staged in 1954 and later made into a Katharine Hepburn vehicle, telling the story of a “plain” young woman reinvented thanks to the charms of a traveling conman. Lizzie Curry spends her days housekeeping for her father and brothers in a Depression-era town beset by drought. When handsome rascal Starbuck rolls into town, promising rain in exchange for $100, an unlikely series of events gives Lizzie a whole new perspective on her self-worth.

American Blues Theater

Stories of bygone royal families and dispossessed tycoons have no place at American Blues Theater. Rather, the ensemble showcases the American ideas of freedom, equality, and opportunity by telling home-grown stories while pairing production missions with different service agencies. Since its founding in 1985, the company has presented such sepia-hued favorites as On the Waterfront and Oklahoma, all focused on depicting working-class concerns. Their approach has struck a chord in the community—the theater’s members have been honored with numerous Joseph Jefferson Awards, Writers’ Guild Awards, and hearty handshakes.
