Set at the dawn of the 20th century, Ragtime featuring rollicking ragtime music and soaring ballads. Weaving historical figures like Emma Goldman and Booker T. Washington into a fictional tale of people from very different backgrounds meeting under difficult circumstances, it tells the story of America as it went through sometimes glorious, sometimes violent social upheaval.

Ragtime (2009) on Broadway Background

The epic musical based on E.L. Doctorow's novel, Ragtime, returns to Broadway in this new production directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge. The first staging of Ragtime was seen in the Ford Center for the Performing Arts from 1998 to 2000. Although it is not quite as visually impressive as the handsome original Broadway production, this revival of the epic American musical sounds every bit as beautiful, with a full orchestra and an excellent cast realizing Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens' gorgeous score full of soaring ballads and syncopated rhythms.

What’s Ragtime (2009) Like?

Three families - a wealthy New Rochelle clan, a Harlem ragtime pianist and his lover, and an Eastern European immigrant and his young daughter - find their lives colliding in this epic musical adaptation of E.L. Doctorow's novel set during the social tumult of early 20th century America.
