Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles on Broadway

       Last weekend my wife and I went with some friends to see Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theater on 52nd Street.  We first had a great dinner at Sofia’s on 46th Street – the Fettucini Alfredo had the greatest flavor of garlic that I’ve ever tasted! 

       Then on to the theater.  Rain, which began in the 1970s as a club band named Reign featuring songs of the Beatles, is really a performance by the band – there’s no storyline, just music.  They performed well, and played about 30 of the songs of the Beatles. 

       There were only 2 things that disappointed me.  First, the bass player (Paul McCartney’s role) was right-handed; any Beatles fan knows that McCartney plays left-handed, so it could have been more authentic.  And second, more than half of the songs they played were from what I’ll call the later Beatles.  I’m a bigger fan of the early Beatles (She Loves You, Do You Want to Know a Secret?, etc.).  Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable show and evening…
