Ragtime The Musical
April 25, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
APRIL 25 – MAY 11
Based on the famous 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime is an epic musical about America entering a new century. With its glorious score, Ragtime encapsulates the dream and the reality of an America still striving to define itself, seen through three very different perspectives. Mother is living with her typical white upper-class family in New Rochelle. Coalhouse Walker Jr. is an avant-garde musician living with his girlfriend in Harlem. And Tateh is a Jewish immigrant traveling with his daughter from Latvia to Ellis Island to the Lower East Side tenements. Despite their diverse backgrounds, all three will find their lives inextricably tied together by fate and happenstance.
