Rain attended Beverly Hills High School from which she matriculated in 1987.

It was followed by an appearances in “Blackbird Fly”, a 1991 short movie, and in one episode of the “Chicago Hope” TV series in 1995. These engagements provided the basis for her net worth.

Produced, performed and created entirely by Rain, the show was honored with a Los Angeles Times’ Critics Choice, NAACP Theatre as well as Invisible Theatre’s Goldie Klein Awards.
