Called by Time Magazine "A triumph for the stage," and by the International Herald Tribune
"the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical won 1998 Tony Awards for Best
Score, Book and Orchestrations, and won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle
Awards for Best Musical and Best Score.

RAGTIME is not only a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America, but a relevant tale for today.

The musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

Inspired by jazz, gospel, Jewish folk music, and the music of vaudeville, the Tony-winning score creates a thrilling musical
that inspires actors and audiences alike!
