From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

seats better than I expected We were in the 2nd row. The show was good too.
The Orange County Performing Arts Center presents an exhilarating new production of Pippin by Broadway composer (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden, Working, Rags) and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz.
The musical, which debuted on Broadway in 1972 and ran for five years, was a collaboration of Broadway giants, boasting the talents of young composer Schwartz, the explosive energy of actor Ben Vereen, and the vision of legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse. The production won five Tony Awards and received rave reviews.
This vivid re-imagining of Pippin from the Goodspeed Opera House retains the wit, style, and charm of the original production, while infusing it with a contemporary approach. Once again there is “magic to do” — this time with fascinating new sets and costumes, plus the added attraction of “cirque-like” acrobatics.
Micky Dolenz, part of the musical phenomenon The Monkees, performs the role of Charlemagne. While best known for his role as Micky in the television show The Monkees (1966-1968), Dolenz has continued to work as an actor, writer, and director. In 2002, he expanded his reach to Broadway when he took over the role of the villain, Zoser, in the Tim Rice and Elton John musical Aida. Other theatre credits include the national tours of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Grease. Additionally, he wrote and directed Bugsy Malone for the London stage.
