About This Show

Roundabout Theatre Company presents a new Broadway production of 110 in the Shade, starring Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as “Lizzie Curry” and Steve Kazee as “Starbuck.” The musical features a book by N. Richard Nash, music by Harvey Schmidt, lyrics by Tom Jones, and is based on the play The Rainmaker by N. Richard Nash and is directed by Lonny Price.

In the middle of a heat wave in 1930’s Texas, when everyone is longing for rain, or a breeze, Lizzie Curry is on the verge of becoming a hopeless old maid. Her wit, intelligence and skills as a homemaker can’t make up for the fact that she can’t find true love. Even the town sheriff, for whom she harbors a secret yen, won’t take a chance. However, when a charismatic rainmaker named Starbuck enters the town and her family’s life, Lizzie’s world is turned upside down.

TheaterMania Review

Audra McDonald is blindingly incandescent in Lonny Price’s pleasing revival of the 1963 musical.
