Ragtime

Ragtime Tickets

Thom Sutherland directs a new production of Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Terrence McNally's multi Tony award winning musical, Ragtime.

It is the turn of the 20th Century in New York. An era is exploding. A century is spinning. And the people are moving in rhythm and rhyme to the music of Ragtime. Based on the novel by E.L Doctorow, Ragtime weaves together the story of three groups in America, represented by 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.

Our Review

Ragtime was beaten to the 1998 Tony Award for Best Musical by The Lion King, but if Disney has prevailed on Broadway -- where it has run ever since and become the most profitable entertainment of any kind in history, with global revenues in excess of $7billion -- I have no doubt which is the more important show. And the more moving one.
