Enjoy Ragtime the Musical
Thom Sutherland directs a new production of Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Terrence McNally's multi-Tony Award-winning musical, Ragtime.
Ragtime is based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow and weaves together the story of three groups in America; Coalhouse Walker Jr, a Harlem musician; Mother and her white, middle-class family in New Rochelle; and Tateh, a Jewish immigrant who has come to America with his daughter seeking a new life.
Their fictional lives become dramatically intertwined with one another as well as with historical figures including Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, JP Morgan and Henry Ford.
Ragtime led the 1998 Tony Awards with 12 nominations, winning 4 including Best Book by Terrence McNally and Best Original Score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
