Direct from their phenomenally successful Broadway engagement, the internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert, Experience the Beatles with RAIN, returns to the Palace Theater in Waterbury, for three performances, March 15 – 16. Tickets for the Webster Bank Broadway Series presentation are $65, $55, and $45 and be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at, or in person at the box office, 100 East Main Street in Waterbury.

Herald by the Associated Press as “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles,” RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including some of the most complex and challenging songs that the Fab Four recorded in the studio but never performed in front of an audience. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note, multi-media experience that is as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” to later classics like “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” and “ Hey Jude,” this adoring tribute will take audiences back to a time when all they needed was love and a little help from their friends.

For more than two decades, RAIN has distinguished itself from the multitude of Beatles tribute bands by focusing on the details and staying true to The Beatles legacy. The band’s five longtime members – Mark Lewis (keyboards, percussion), Joey Curatolo (vocals, bass, guitar, piano), Joe Bithorn (vocals, lead guitar, guitar synthesizer), Ralph Castelli (vocals, drums, percussion) and Steve Landes (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica) approach The Beatles’ music with the same respect a classical musician treats classical music, studying each song, note, movement and nuance both musically and vocally. Today, the extraordinarily talented musicians have mastered a repertoire of over 200 Beatles songs.
