Colibri, directly across the street from the theater, is great for dinner before the show. Tasty tapas to share.

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)
