PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

This epic new musical by the award-winning composer/lyricist team Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Once On This Island, Seussical) paints a nostalgic and powerful portrait of life in turn of the century America. Based on E.L. Doctorow?s distinguished novel, Ragtime intertwines three distinct stories that poignantly illustrate history?s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and love and hate.Flaherty?s score is just as diverse as the Melting Pot of America that it seeks to recreate. It draws upon traditional Jewish folk sounds to color the haunting music of the immigrants, Vaudeville?s outrageous style to capture the spectacle of Evelyn Nesbit, and Joplin and Jazz to invoke the enlivened spirit of Harlem.Back by popular demand! If you missed it the first time round, come back and catch it again with the original cast
