Ragtime Tickets

It will be great to watch Ragtime, i have bought tickets from http://ticketfront.com/event/Ragtime-tickets looking forward to it.

Strong performances in a great show

I went to this show with minimal expectations, thinking because of the name it was primarily an African American show. I dont know why I thought this--it was not at all true. It was a wonderful historical account of life in NY in the early 1900s for whites, blacks and immigrants...how they mixed or didnt mix. It depicted the political and social climate extremely well, and I felt I learned something. The performances were superb--full of honesty and emotion. I was so happy that I didnt let my misconceptions prevent me from seeing such a well-done show.

A Great Musical Production

I really enjoyed Ragtime--its a big, old-fashioned musical with talented actor/singers, a great set, a full orchestra, and beautiful costumes. How can you go wrong?

Superb!

Just back from seeing this magnificent production and am looking forward to seeing it soon again. It has been a long time since everyone and everything in a Broadway musical melded into a superb whole, and in RAGTIME they do. Quentin Earl Dorrington and Christine Noll brilliantly led the rest of this talented cast, and the audience was with them from the moment the curtain went up. Note: If the overtures to GYPSY and CANDIDE are considered the greatest in musical theater history, can anyone doubt that the opening ensemble in RAGTIME is the very best of its kind? Kudos to everyone involved, especially director Marcia Milgrom Dodge whose brilliance is in evidence in every scene. A great, great production. Go, by all means!

Blown Away

Ragtime is a reminder of what Broadway is meant to be. A new and wonderful talent, Stephanie Umoh gave me chills during her performance. Her counter part Quentin Earl Darrington made it seem as if the role was written for him. Subtle changes from the original production and a vibrant energy made this the best show Ive seen in years!!!!
