‘A TRIUMPH FOR THE STAGE’

TIME Magazine

‘THE BEST MUSICAL IN TWENTY YEARS’

Herald Tribune

At the dawn of a new century everything is changing…and anything is possible. Set in the melting pot of New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, Tateh  (Josh Piterman, Beautiful) and the daring young Harlem musician  Coalhouse Walker Jr (Kurt Kansley, whom Melbourne critics have  hailed for his recent performance as Che Guevara in Evita). Chloe Zuel (Dusty) is his fiancée, Sarah. Together they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice and  what it means to live in America.

The winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score, Ragtime is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no  other musical.

Ragtime draws upon many musical styles: the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, the klezmer of the Lower East Side, brass band marches and delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes and expansive anthems. A truly unique and powerful portrait of America, Ragtime is sure to inspire.
