Why See Ragtime?

An exciting new production of the Tony-winning hit!

A collaboration between Asolo Repertory Theatre and 5th Avenue Theatre, this fall welcomes a new production of this much-loved musical that explores themes ranging from immigration to racism and social unrest in the early 20th century. With memorable tunes including "Wheels of a Dream," "Back to Before," "Your Daddy's Son," "New Music" and "Journey On". is a tapestry of New York area life in the first decades of the 20th century.

What to expect

People from radically different walks of life - an African-American family, a Jewish immigrant family and a wealthy suburban WASP family - wach their lives intersect in the aftermath of a crime, with unexpectedly emotional results.
The winner of four Tony Awards during its 1998 Broadway debut production, Ragtime is a grand diorama of early 20th Century American life, featuring appearances from some of the most important figures of the day, including Houdini and Henry Ford, and all shot through with the music of ragtime. It was most recently revived on The Great White Way in 2009, where it once again garnered glowing critical notices.
