Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of an upper-class wife, a Jewish immigrant, and a young Harlem musician. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair… and what it means to live in America. Called by TIME Magazine “A triumph for the stage,” and by the International Herald Tribune “the best musical in twenty years,” Ragtime is filled with pageantry, emotion, and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.
