What is this show?

One of the most acclaimed American musicals of the last twenty years, Ragtime is a sweeping epic of hopes and dreams in a changing America at the turn of the 20th century.

Just beyond the gaze of lady liberty, the stories of three evolving and distinct communities in New York are woven together to create a fabric that blankets a new era in the land of opportunity.

A Jewish immigrant seeking a new life in America is awakened to the possibilities of success; a mother from an upper-class suburban family sees that privilege and comfort may not be as desirable as she once thought; and a gifted African-American musician, prolific in the dissonant and romantic melodies of ragtime, learns that love and passion can spark the wheels of change.

Peppered with great historical characters from Houdini to Henry Ford to Booker T. Washington, Ragtime’s Tony Award-winning score draws upon the unique sounds of the American landscape—heard from Harlem to the Lower-East-Side—to create a truly remarkable theatrical event.
