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.

“It shimmers with hope for the future of the American musical” —New York Times
Rent, the critically acclaimed Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that inspired a major motion picture, has made a lasting mark on Broadway with songs that rock and a story that really resonates. Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about being young and learning to survive, falling in love, finding your voice and living for today.
The show received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996, to ecstatic reviews. It quickly became a sold-out hit. The show transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996, where it continues to play at The Nederlander Theatre. Rent is now the seventh longest running show in Broadway history.
The success of Rent is always tempered by the death of its creator, Jonathan Larson. Larson died unexpectedly of an aortic aneurysm on the morning of January 25, 1996, just hours after Rent’s final dress rehearsal off-Broadway, and 10 days before his 36th birthday.
