Famous historical characters and a rich score propel "Ragtime" through a spectacular recreation of turn-of-the-20th-century New York. Based on E.L. Doctorow’s acclaimed novel, this 13-time Tony-nominated musical paints a nostalgic and powerful portrait of three people -- a stifled married woman from the upper classes, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young musician from Harlem -- whose fates become unexpectedly intertwined. With music and lyrics by the Tony Award-winning team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the show boasts a Tony Award-winning book by Terrence McNally and such memorable songs as “Getting Ready Rag,” “Wheels of a Dream,” “Till We Reach That Day” and “Make Them Hear You.” Recommendation: Ages 13 and up. Contains mature themes and strong language.
