This classic American play is described by the author as a "romantic comedy." It takes place on a family cattle farm in the American Southwest in the midst of a drought. The Father, H.C. Curry, along with his two sons, is concerned about his daughter, Lizzie, and her prospects for marriage. Into their lives comes Starbuck, The Rainmaker, whose bold promises and swaggering optimism provide a source of hope — and suspicion — to the Currys. Part outlaw, part spellbinder, and part romantic — will he give Lizzie the hope of a better life? And will it rain...?
CHANGE TO OUR CURRENT SEASON. . .
LTVB's Play Reading Committee, always insightful, savvy and ahead of the pack, selected Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike for our schedule this year. However, this show is SO popular that professional theater companies are clamoring to stage it! Although in the past we were lucky to secure the rights to other top plays, including August: Osage County, Good People, and Other Desert Cities, we, unfortunately, will not be able to produce Vanya as the last show this season. We have selected as the replacement, Neil Simon's Rumours, directed by Jeremiah Albers, which will run May 15 - June 7th. This raucous comedy is classic Neil Simon wit and will have you rolling in the aisles! As a group of suburbanites gather for a cocktail party to celebrate one couple's anniversary, the absence of the host and hostess starts the rumors flying! Are they alive or dead? Together or apart? You'll have to see the show to find out!
Little Theatre of Virginia Beach is funded in part by the citizens of Virginia Beach through a grant from the City of Virginia Beach Arts and Humanities Commission.
