PHOTO CALL: Rain – A Tribute to The Beatles Resumes on Broadway

News   PHOTO CALL: Rain – A Tribute to The Beatles Resumes on Broadway Rain – A Tribute to The Beatles on Broadway, the musical concert that conjures the frenzy of the British pop invasion of America, reopened Feb. 8 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre following a successful limited run at the Neil Simon Theatre.

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."

Here is the cast on opening night at its new home:
