My husband and I just saw The Rainmaker at Edgemar Center for the Arts and we can't wait to go back to see more. We'd never seen the play or the movie so we had no preconceived ideas about what to expect from the performance. It was a small, intimate theater. Very comfortable. I felt like I was sitting in a chair in the corner of the kitchen listening to the neighbors interact. The actors were all superb in their roles. The only one who seemed to be overacting just slightly was the actor who played the Rainmaker himself - but after reflection, I realize that the character himself was an "actor" of sorts on the stage of life, so that was probably quite fitting for the role. The Theater troupe was Henry Jaglom and The Rainbow Theater Company. This play was quite appropriate for families (no children, just teens and up). Intermission was another story. The "refreshment" stand wasn't - I think somebody forgot to pick up the water, soda, etc. because in a theater that fit maybe 120 people max, they had already run out of water, wine, soda - and the drinking fountain didn't work. Fortunately, there was a Peets Coffee right outside the door so I'm sure they appreciate the business. If you go, be there on time. Nobody is allowed in five minutes after the start because you are literally walking on the stage to get to your seat! More than worth it. Go across the street afterward to Thai Vegan - It's a hole in the wall next to a Thai Massage place (I know - don't go there! LOL!) - order at the counter and the staff is a bit rude - BUT the food was absolutely incredible. Nothing over $7.00 - prices primarily $5 - $7. Well worth the comically inept (think Seinfeld's Soup Nazi) staff.
