WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Set in the volatile melting pot of New York City, this musical theater masterpiece weaves together three distinct American stories: those of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician, all united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. At Ragtime's core is a compelling story of love. The musical's scintillating, Tony Award-winning score is by composer Stephen Flaherty and lyricist Lynn Ahrens. The show also features a Tony-winning book by Terrence McNally.
