110 in the Shade - 2004 - Los Angeles Tickets, News, Info & More

Based on the play The Rainmaker by N. Richard Nash

Adapted by Nash from his classic play "The Rainmaker," "110 in the Shade" tells the story of Lizzie Curry, a love-starved woman living on a rain-starved Texas ranch during the Depression. Lizzie likes to speak her mind, and she's plenty headstrong, but also lonely. Her father and brothers would like to see her hitched and happy, maybe to Sheriff File, who's become a brooding loner since his wife left him. Bursting with charisma, con-man Starbuck swaggers into town, promising rain to the drought-parched town, and a chance of romance for Lizzie.



"110 in the Shade" opened on Broadway 50 years ago on October 24, 1963, at the Broadhurst Theatre. Starring Inga Swenson as Lizzie and Will Geer as H.C. Curry and featuring the choreography of Agnes De Mille, the original production was nominated for four Tony Awards. The Roundabout Theater Company's 2007 revival starred Audra McDonald as Lizzie, Steve Kazee as Starbuck and John Cullum as H.C. Curry; it received five Tony nominations and won two Drama Desk awards for outstanding revival of a musical and for best actress in a musical.

Today, we're wishing a Happy Birthday to Broadway favorite, Betsy Wolfe!
by Student Blogger: Mariana Elosúa - Jan 4, 2022
I want to celebrate all the accomplishments I've achieved this year. I am sure that every single individual in this world, was able to accomplish something big or small. These accomplishments might be getting a good grade, landing a job, waking up without feeling tired, eating that dessert you've wanted, facing a hard time, learning something new, and more. Why am I saying this? Well, because sometimes we downsize our accomplishments and we believe that fitting the norm, doing the norm, and being the norm is and should be easy. Following the norm as well as breaking the norm is hard. 2021, you were a big year for me. There are so many things I got to do and try out as well as so many moments I wished I could just lie in my bed and disappear from what was happening.
