RAIN at Starlight June 19,20

RAIN Returns to Starlight Theatre June 19 and 20

By popular demand, Starlight Theatre brings back RAIN - A Tribute to the Beatles June 19 and 20. The internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert comes direct from their phenomenally successful Broadway engagement.

As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio, but never performed for an audience. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting.

"I am so excited that RAIN is returning to Starlight. They were a big hit when they were here before and we've enlarged our screens to make this multi-media experience even better," said Denton Yockey, president and executive producer of Starlight Theatre.

Winner of the 2011 Drama Desk for Outstanding Revue, RAIN - A Tribute to The Beatles
currently stars "Paul" Mac Ruffing (vocals, bass, guitar, piano); "George" Joe
Bithorn (vocals, lead guitar, guitar synthesizer); "Ringo" Ralph Castelli (vocals, drums, percussion); "John" Steve Landes (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica); and Chris Smallwood who is part of the ensemble and plays keyboards on stage with the band.

From the early hits to later classics (I Want To Hold Your Hand, Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Let It Be, Come Together, Hey Jude and more), this adoring tribute takes audience members back to a time when all you needed was love and a little help from your friends!

Called "uncanny," RAIN are a quartet of fine musicians in their own right…as The Beatles, they triumph!" (The Boston Herald), like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers.
