The play was translated into over 40 languages and made into the 1956 film The Rainmaker starring Burt Lancaster and Katharine Hepburn. The story was also made into a Broadway musical, 110 in the Shade. The play was revived on Broadway in 1999-2000 starring Woody Harrelson and Jayne Atkinson who was nominated for the 2000 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play. The play has been revived frequently.
