News   Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles to Give Actors Fund Performance March 27
 
Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles will offer its March 27 performance at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre as a benefit for the Actors Fund.

The 7 PM performance will also include a special talkback with the Rain cast moderated by Julie James of Satellite Radio's "Live On Broadway." Tickets to the special performance are available by visiting ActorsFund.org or by phoning (212) 221-7300, ext. 133.

Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles began its extended Broadway engagement Oct. 19, 2010, at the Neil Simon Theatre. It went on a brief winter hiatus and resumed performances Feb. 8, 2011, at the Brooks Atkinson. The 90-minute revue is now selling tickets through Jan. 1, 2012.

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 also feature Graham Alexander, Doug Cox, Jim Irizarry, Jimmy Pou, Mac Ruffing and Tom Teeley. Rain is presented on Broadway by Annerin Productions; MagicSpace Entertainment; Nederlander Presentations, Inc; Sony/ATV and RAIN.
