There is a great Thai restaurant called Chaba across the street. It's convenient to eat and don't have to rush to where you need to go to see the show.

Go beforehand to Morton's or Coolibris for their happy hour. Buy a drink at the show and bring it inside. End the night with a trip to the Redwood Room.

Description

A classic American romance, _The Rainmaker is a refreshingly heartfelt fable about a con man, a country girl, and the way that love can overcome cynicism in even the most tired of souls. T_he Rainmaker centers on the charismatic huckster Starbuck, who travels the heartland selling snake-oil and other dubious miracle cures. At the drought-stricken Curry farm, Starbuck promises to make it rain—for a price, of course. But when he and Lizzie, the lone daughter of the family, discover a genuine chemistry, they begin to consider the possibility of a real miracle.

By N. Richard Nash

Directed by Mark Rucker (The Beard of Avon)
