Thom Southerland revives the multi Tony Award-winning musical Ragtime, exploring the changing face of America at the turn of the 20th century in New York.

Critically lauded upon its inception in the 1990s by Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime weaves together the fortunes of three disparate peoples.

Coalhouse Walker Jr. is a Harlem musician. Mother leads a white, middle class family in New Rochelle. Tateh is a Jewish immigrant, seeking a new life for himself and his daughter in the wonders of America. Soon, all three groups find themselves dramatically intertwined, and moving in rhythm and rhyme to the music of Ragtime.

A hark back to the an era of incredible excitement, Ragtime is a historical epic of immense poignancy, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
