Book by Terrence McNally 

Music by Stephen Flaherty  

Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Based on the novel Ragtime by E. L. Doctorow

 

“It was the music

Of something beginning,

An era exploding,

A century spinning

In riches and rags,

And in rhythm and rhyme.

The people called in ragtime…”

 

AT THE DAWN OF A NEW CENTURY, EVERYTHING IS CHANGING AND ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

Ragtime is a sweeping epic musical about the birth of America that weaves together real celebrities and historical events with a timeless tale of three families in pursuit of the American Dream.

Set in the melting pot of New York, the stories of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician are intertwined, united by their desire for and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair - and what it means to live in America.

A multi award-winning masterpiece from Lynn Flaherty and Stephen Ahrens, with a book by Terrence McNally, Ragtime is a compelling story of courage, love and hope.
