October 6 – 11
“We are thrilled to present one of the hottest performance events of the year, RAIN - A Tribute to the Beatles,” states Christopher B. Manos, Producer of Theater of the Stars. “Take a joyful trip down memory lane and ‘Get Back’ to ‘Yesterday’ with a show that the Washington Post calls ‘An adoring Valentine to The Beatles!’ Make plans to bring your family and your boomer friends to see RAIN when it plays the Fabulous Fox Theatre from October 6-11. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets, 800-982-2787 and http://www.ticketmaster.com/.”
In a show the Denver Post calls “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles,” RAIN boasts a repertoire of nearly 200 Beatlemania favorites, ranging from such beloved songs as “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Hey Jude” to classic hits including “Revolution” and “Come Together.”
RAIN covers the Fab Four from their very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through the Abbey Road album, through the psychedelic late 60s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience...a fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups.
For the four longtime band members – Joey Curatolo (Paul McCartney), Joe Bithorn (George Harrison), Ralph Castelli (Ringo Starr) and Steve Landes (John Lennon), with a little help from their friend Mark Lewis (keyboards, percussion) – the music is first and foremost. For more than two decades, RAIN has distinguished itself by focusing on details, always being faithful to The Beatles with the ultimate goal of delivering a perfect note-for-note performance. All the music is performed live, with no pre-recorded tapes or sequences.
