About This Show

Truly the event of 2016, Rain marks Artistic Director Barry Edelstein’s musical directing debut. This sumptuous world premiere brings to San Diego one of the most exciting teams working in theatre today: Michael John LaChiusa and Sybille Pearson. Based on Somerset Maugham’s famous short story, Rain follows a group of American travelers thrown together in a boarding house on a tropical South Pacific island. The sudden arrival of another guest, the mysterious and provocative Sadie Thompson, turns their lives upside down in ways they could never have foreseen. Featuring a lush and stirring score by LaChiusa, the genius behind Broadway’s The Wild Party, Rain is a powerful and sweeping musical drama.
