There probably won’t be a Justin Bieber experience 20 years from now. An Ariana Grande tribute show seems out of the question, too.But it’s unlikely an act could attain the kind of influence the Beatles had on several generations.Hearing a good chunk of their songs in “Rain – A Tribute to the Beatles” explains plenty and shows just how evolutionary they were.Playing as part of the Broadway at the Orpheum series Thursday night, the show wasn’t exactly a juke-box musical in the same sense as “Million Dollar Quartet” or “Jersey Boys.” But it had enough of the past’s flavor to hint at the era.Singing and accompanying themselves, four actors never called themselves John, Paul, George or Ringo, but it was clear who was who and who did what.Of the quartet, Paul Curatolo was probably the biggest ringer. He not only sounded like Paul McCartney, he also had many of his moves down and, yes, did a “Yesterday” that would make you weep.Alastair McNeil was pretty close to George Harrison, too, and had so many good guitar moves he probably could impress the biggest cynics.Oddly, Steve Landes’ John Lennon didn’t get the kind of showcase you might have expected. He was in the background throughout much of the first act and, like, Aaron Chiazza’s Ringo Starr, was largely support.
