Don’t miss this powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America and a relevant tale for today.
Time Magazine calls Ragtime “A triumph for the stage,” and the International Herald Tribunesays “[it’s] the best musical in twenty years.” This acclaimed musical won 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score.
Ragtime is based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, and like the literary work itself, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, as they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.
Featured are such show stopping songs as “Getting Ready Rag,” “Your Daddy’s Son,” “Wheels of a Dream,” “Till We Reach That Day,” “Back To Before,” and “Make Them Hear You.” This thrilling musical is sure to inspire actors and audiences alike!
