‘Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles’ takes audiences back to Beatlemania days

As a concert that originated on Broadway, “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles” is a bit more than just a group of impersonators singing hits that are now widely known as standards of the American song book. The production aims to re-create the experience of a Beatles concert at every stage of the Brit-pop sensation’s career. Four actor/musicians take on the personas of George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon as they play the hits live alongside video projections to cue each song’s era. After 300 performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City from October 2010 to July 2011, the group is now a regular touring act. The show will be at the Charleston Gaillard Center for one night only this week while in town on an extensive world tour.

When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday

Where: 95 Calhoun St.

Price: $27-$108
