Experience the Beatles with RAIN is the internationally acclaimed Beatles concert that returns to San Diego by popular demand! Fans have their chance to visit the San Diego Civic Theatre for this cheerfully nostalgic production running January 4-6, 2013. Tickets are on sale now only as part of Broadway/San Diego's 2012-2013 35th Anniversary Season Package.
Winner of the 2011 Drama Desk for Outstanding Revue, Experience the Beatles with RAIN On Broadway currently stars its original creators Joey Curatolo (vocals, bass, guitar, piano), Joe Bithorn (vocals, lead guitar, guitar synthesizer), Ralph Castelli (vocals, drums, percussion), Steve Landes (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica) and Mark Lewis (founding member and manager.)
RAIN has played nearly 800 shows to over a million people worldwide, including audiences in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Canada and the United States, and has grossed $55.5 million worldwide since 2008. In the past few years, the touring production of RAIN reached as high as number 8 on the Pollstar worldwide touring charts – a list that includes artists such as Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi and Elton John.
Like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right. In addition to members of the original RAIN band, at certain performances the show features the talents of Graham Alexander, Mark Beyer, Joe Bologna, Douglas Cox, Jim Irizarry, Alan LoBoeuf, David Leon, Mark Lewis, Jimmy Pou, Mac Ruffing, Andy Sarraf, John Korba, Chris Smallwood and Tom Teeley.
Together longer than The Beatles themselves, 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. From the early hits to later classics that The Beatles never got the chance to play live, this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends.
