[LAWS] Dinner followed by The Rainmaker, the Tony-Nominated Romantic Comedy

Overview: The group will meet at 5:30pm for dinner at the Brick + Morter, 2435 Main St. Santa Monica, CA 90405, which is next to the Edgemar Theater. We will walk  next door to the theater at about 7:15 to see the Rainmaker. The play starts at 7:30pm, the box office opens 30 minutes before the show. Seating is open. When you RSVP let me know if you are joining us for dinner.

PLEASE don't RSVP 'Yes' unless you intend to purchase a ticket immediately; this is the last month for the play and several weekends are already sold out on the discount sites.  The LAWS Attendance Policy applies to this event.

The Play: N. Richard Nash's The Rainmaker has it all: faith, love, humor, emotion and even a little magic. Farm girl Lizzie Curry is best described as "plain." Her marriage prospects and dreams of escape are as dry as her family's drought-ridden farm. Her dad and brothers' efforts to marry her off are laughable. Enter the fast-thinking, smooth-talking "rainmaker" Starbuck, who could solve both the romantic issue and drought problem. Lizzie's father gives the man the last of the family's savings and holds onto his hat. Will Starbuck turn out to be a con man and a liar, or is he a hero with magical powers? Nash's funny and poignant American tale brings out the true power of hope during hard times. Rainmaker is a LA Times Critics Choice and Ovation Recommended. You can also check out the reviews on Goldstar.


Restaurant: Brick+Mortar  will not do separate checks for a large party please bring cash.

Tickets: Full price tickets cost 34.50 and can be purchased from the theater website, or you can call them at reservations- (310) 392-7327.

Discounted Options:

LA STAGE Alliance has tickets for $17.50 + a fee $4.00

Goldstar has tickets from at $17.50 + a fee $5.00

Parking:There is parking for $6.00 at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, after 5pm. Across the street in Public Parking structure 9 parking is $1.00 per hour. There is also street parking, but you have to feed the meter and your car has to be moved every 2 hours. When I called the theater they told me there are sensors for the metered parking so if the car has not moved out of the space you will be ticketed.

    FYI, I just spoke with LA Stage Alliance because I hadn't gotten a refund. They didn't know the performance had been canceled. They are researching it now and verifying that they have discounted tickets for Aug. 31. In case anyone else ordered through them.
