February 9, 2016 – Ragtime
This 13 time Tony® award-nominated musical is a timeless celebration of life, based on a true story by E.L. Doctorow published in 1975. Ragtime returns to the stage in a striking, all-new touring Broadway production from the producing team that most recently brought the nation The Color Purple and Spamalot.
The stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician unfold. Set in turn-of-the-century New York, all three are united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling stories are set to a rich and glorious Tony® award-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens.
