Rain Man, the inaugural production of Bill Kenwright’s Classic Screen to Stage Theatre Company, will come to Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre from April 1-6, 2019 with a new star cast.
Paul Nicholls will play Raymond Babbit, joined by Chris Fountain as Charlie Babbitt.
Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects, Ben Torrie, said: “I’m thrilled that Paul and Chris will be leading this acclaimed production – we can’t wait to welcome them to HMT next year.”
Two brothers.One Destiny. When self-centered salesman Charlie Babbitt discovers that his long-lost brother Raymond, an autistic savant with a genius for numbers, has inherited the family fortune; he sets out to get ‘his half’.
Charlie ‘borrows’ Raymond from the institution where he has spent most of his life and the two brothers embark on a trip across America where Charlie soon discovers that Raymond is worth more than he could have ever imagined.
Inspired by the heart-warming Oscar-winning film, which famously starred Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman and won Oscar’s for best picture, best screenplay, best director and best actor, Rain Man follows previous acclaimed Bill Kenwright productions of films to the stage such as A Few Good Men, The Shawshank Redemption and Twelve Angry Men.
