Win tickets to ‘Rain,’ the Beatles tribute show

“Rain” is in the forecast for Thursday evening.

The popular Beatles tribute show returns as part of the Broadway in Fresno series for one performance only. There’s a big date to celebrate: It’s the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” The production promises updated sets, new LED and high-definition screens and multimedia content, along with a note-for-note performance of the album.


And here’s the best part: You can win a pair of tickets to the show (7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the Saroyan Theatre) plus dinner for two at the Cosmopolitan Tavern and free parking in the restaurant’s convention center lot.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post answering this question: Thanks to the nifty Munro Review Mostly Accurate Time Machine™, you get the chance to go back to 1967 to meet one (and only one!) of the Beatles. Which one would it be and why? (Assuming you don’t get sent back to the Paleozoic Era by mistake.) If you’re too shy to share your time-travel plans, just tell us why you’d like to go to “Rain.”


Deadline to enter is 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 10. I’ll pick the winner at random. Be sure to check your email by Tuesday evening.

Regular tickets to the production are $31-$61.50 and are available on Ticketmaster.

    I would like to talk with George. I think he was the best musician of the Fab 4

    John Lennon! I was in the eighth grade the year Lennon was assassinated. We had to do a class report on a famous American, and since Lennon was made a citizen post humously, I structured my report like I was interviewing John Lennon, with the help of another classmate who loved The Beatles. (It’s almost like there were early clues that I was destined to be a journalist.)

    Definitely Paul

    Ah, this is an easy one. John… because, well, John. Also, because he wrote my “wedding march.” In January, I walked down the aisle to All You Need Is Love. Lastly, the Beatles are my musician husband’s favorite (his mom even painted a version of the famed Abbey Road album cover for him) and a Beatles inspired night out would be such a sweet way to celebrate four whole months of wedded bliss!

    Oh it would be Paul of course! Always had a crush on him. And he’s amazingly still going strong after all these years!
    Thanks for your reviews and information.

  • I’d like to talk with George about other musical influences he would like to explore.

  • Stephen A Mintz

    Ugh…only one??!? In 1967 the lads were starting their drug use, so I guess I’d go get high with Paul. John would be more interesting, but he might get into a mood and not want to talk with an American of the bourgeoisie class. Paul can explain his songwriting process and maybe play a little bit. Plus I’ll subtly sing “Hey Jude” to him and he can use my prescience as inspiration for the song.

    Definitely John. He was always the most interesting guy.

  • Shawn Williams

    Paul, I guess I could still meet him, but he’s so good.

  • Linda Ramirez

    Well Paul of course. He was a little cutie.

  • Harrison. He’d have all the dirt on John and Paul.

  • Susan

    I was always most intrigued by George, although I did meet John in the early 70s and became a big fan thereafter. Just love their music.

  • Jennifer Money

    Paul! I would love to take my sister or husband to the show they’re both huge fans

  • John Lennon because he was beginning to explore more sophisticated lyrics and beginning to channel Dylan through a more refined psychedelic lens.

  • Silvia Fisher

    John Lennon of course 😊
