Event Navigation

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-centuryNew York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that ofa 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. 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. Written by the award-winningcomposer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Once on ThisIsland, Seussical and Lucky Stiff), noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, Ragtime is the winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, andboth the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by the International Herald Tribune “the best musicalin twenty years,” this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical. Directed by Peter Sampieri Musical direction by Joseph Stroup Choreography by Jenna Pollack Prelude Conversation with director and production team – Thursday,
