Rain began its Broadway engagement Oct. 19, 2010, at the Neil Simon Theatre, where it extended through Jan. 15. In order to allow for the new Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can to begin performances at the Simon as scheduled on March 11, Rain producers announced that the musical revue would move to the smaller Brooks Atkinson Theatre (after a brief hiatus) for a run through May 29.

Rock of Ages, the previous tenant of the Brooks Atkinson, has relocated to the Helen Hayes Theatre. That musical will resume Broadway performances March 24.

In Rain, vocalists, musicians and entertainers Joey Curatolo, Joe Bithorn, Joe Bologna and David Leon perform the Beatles' hits live on stage and recreate the numerous iconic looks made famous by the rock band.

According to producers, "From the early days of their appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show' in 1964 through Sgt. Pepper and on to the Abbey Road years, Rain performs it all. The multi-media concert recaptures the era through all phases of The Beatles astounding musical career including Shea Stadium, the psychedelic late 60s and The Beatles long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. A fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups."

Certain performances of Rain will also feature Graham Alexander, Doug Cox, Jim Irizarry, Jimmy Pou, Mac Ruffing and Tom Teeley.

Rain is presented on Broadway by Annerin Productions, Magic Arts & Entertainment/Tix Productions and Nederlander Presentations, Inc.
