BLURB ABOUT SHOW:
At the dawn of the century, everything is changing…and anything is possible. Based on E.L. Doctorow’s celebrated epic novel and set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, RAGTIME weaves together three distinctly American tales — that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician — united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Their personal journeys come alive as historic figures offer guidance and diversion – among them escape artist Harry Houdini, auto tycoon Henry Ford, educator Booker T. Washington and infamous entertainer Evelyn Nesbit. Together, their stories celebrate the struggle between tradition and independence all in pursuit of the American dream.

THE BEST MUSICAL OF 2009. “A solid, well-sung revival. TERRENCE MCNALLY’S book is one of the BEST NOVEL-TO-MUSICAL TRANSFORMATIONS I’ve seen, and the STEPHEN FLAHERTY – LYNN AHRENS score reinvigorates the ragtime idiom.” – Richard Zoglin, TIME
“AN ELEGANT, UPLIFTING PRODUCTION. A panoramic vision of America. Warmly acted with a majestic set, RAGTIME has moments of PIERCING SENSITIVITY and an AFFECTING HUMAN SOUL. TERRENCE MCNALLY’s script is a MARVEL of clarity.” – Ben Brantley, New York Times
“This is MUSICAL THEATER AT ITS MOST VIBRANT. No show investigates the nuances of the word ‘change’ as it relates to the American Dream more masterfully than RAGTIME. TRENCHANT and TIMELY, MARCIA MILGROM DODGE’s ELEGANT REVIVAL is delivered with fresh clarity and emotional immediacy. The focus is intimate, the sorrows piercing and the joys uplifting! The creative team is working at PEAK POTENTIAL. Under MARCIA MILGROM DODGE’s assured direction, the IMPECCABLE CAST plays like perfectly tuned instruments. The score is BEAUTIFULLY SUNG and played with all the exquisite dimension only a full-size orchestra can bring, making RAGTIME a TRANSPORTING SENSORY EXPERIENCE.” – David Rooney, Variety
“SOARING music and ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL singing. RAGTIME is about nothing less than the forces that shaped this country: immigration and risk-taking, ingenuity and generosity. It’s big ideas, with big songs, big stories and big personalities. MARCIA MILGROM DODGE has a great eye and comes up with many GORGEOUS, PAINTERLY COMPOSITIONS.” – Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
“RAGTIME features a supple cast under MARCIA MILGROM DODGE’S VIBRANT direction. LYNN AHRENS’ and STEPHEN FLAHERTY’s songs are well-crafted and GENUINELY SOULFUL. TERRENCE MCNALLY’s book tugs at your heart and conscience with such artful aggression that only an ogre could resist the urge to weep at some points and smile at others.” – Elysa Gardner, USA Today
