Josh Hartnett and Adam Godley star in this stage adaptation of the classic MGM film. Rain Man tells the story of Raymond, who has been hidden in an institution for most of his adult life and is dysfunctional in many senses. He is also touched with a kind of stellar genius, which his brother Charlie, an L.A.-based automobile dealer and hustler, harnesses to save his business. The two brothers embark on a rollercoaster journey together that shows Raymond a world beyond the hospital gates and teaches Charlie the meaning of unconditional love.
