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 from "Can't Buy Me Love" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "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 and have 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.

The show was very good, if a little long. The first half was a session aimed at kids as an introduction to ballet and was excellent. The second half - the actual Where the Wild Things Are was good, costumes and dance was wonderful, but I wasn't a huge fan of the music.
The Washington Ballet (TWB) will kick off its lively 2007-2008 Family Series with Where the Wild Things Are at Washington's historic Warner Theatre. The ballet will bring to life Maurice Sendak's best-selling story through innovative choreography by TWB Artistic Director Septime Webre, a specially commissioned score, and dazzling 10-foot-tall puppets. "I am thrilled to be returning to this classic tale by my good friend and collaborator Maurice Sendak," says Webre. "This program is sure to capture the imaginations of audiences young and old."
Preceding the show will be a 30-minute "Kids Gala!"
