Written by N. Richard Nash and directed by Gayle Stahlhuth. The Rainmaker, a romantic comedy, was so popular when it opened on Broadway in 1954, that is translated into thirty languages, turned into a film, and was adapted for 1964 musical 110 in the Shade. It's the 1930's, out West, during the Depression, with no hope of rain in site. Enter Starbuck, who claimes he can make it rain for $100. There are those who believe he can do it, and those who don't. And then there's Lizzie, who wants so much to believe in anything - especially herself.
