Tanna Frederick is absolutely magnetic (as always) in the lead role. The rest of the cast is excellent, they all properly depict this period piece. Well done indeed.

If you think you’ve seen this play before, you’re deluding yourself. You haven’t really seen it until you witness this magnetic performance.

A wonderfully written play very well acted. For whatever reason some of the dialog was lost. It is possible because of the accents needed, since it takes place in central, rural America. Overall a very good experience.

After a slow first act that does not catch fire until the character "Starbuck" arrives, this production grabs you and never lets go with it emotional
pull and involvement. Not in the least dated, it makes you care for real people with dreams and...continued

Wonderful performance, everyone was just terrific. Best performance my husband & I have seen in some time. Open seating so we sat just where we wanted. Small theater so every seat would be good. We parked on a street behind the theater, so no...continued

It is a nice theater. We got front row seats so it was very close and personal. Starbuck was a little too over the top and too sexual for me which made it uncomfortable during some of the scenes. There was also a lot of fighting between the...continued

I think the acting had been overrated. The con man was the best.
There were no snacks or water at intermission.

First time at the theater - liked it...would go to another venue there. Should have more assortments of refreshments as well as some wine would be tasteful. Production was cute!

It's a wonderfully intimate theater so the audience gets immediately engaged. The actress who played Lizzie was superb--so much feeling and honest emotion as well as great interaction with the other actors. All the actors were honest and...continued

We loved this exceptional production of The Rainmaker. We highly recommend it. The attention to detail that the director, Jack Heller, envisioned is wonderful. And the actors are really a pleasure. The woman in the lead is excellent, as our the...continued
