REVIEW: You’re a Fool on the Hill If You Don’t Get a Ticket for This Ride

by Joy Donovan on March 18, 2010


Rain will perform through Sunday in Dallas.

Rain will perform through Sunday in Dallas.

If you close your eyes, you could be transported to another decade. But if you do, you’ll miss a good part of the fun of “Rain–A Tribute to the Beayles,” now on stage at the Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas.

The multi-media journey, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals, begins with news reels of fainting teens and Ed Sullivan and continues tripping right through to the Beatles’ psychedelic hippie days. All the while the audience is treated to a live musical performance transporting the lucky listeners to a time when The Beatles were a huge part of the American experience.

Musicians Steve Landes, Joey Curatolo, Joe Bithorn and Ralph Castelli take on the parts of the Fab Four, delivering such musical landmarks as “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and ”Twist and Shout” in the signature skinny-legged suits and mop tops made famous in the ’60s. Then, with help from back-up musician Mark Lewis, they re-create such chart-toppers as “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in the military-inspired get-ups.

The music’s all Beatles, much to the opening-night crowd’s delight, even if the performers’ faces aren’t quite exact clones. But just squint, and you’ll think you’ve landed in a time machine.

Beatle tunes are crammed into two hours of fun, and aging hippies should be forewarned. Choose your seat carefully; the aging hippies in front of you just might decided to twist, shout or flash a peace sign.

“Rain–A Tribute to the Beatles” continues through Sunday at the Music Hall at Fair Park.
