RAGTIME OPENS MARCH 7!
The original Broadway production of Ragtime was nominated for 13 Tony Awards, and took home five of them, including Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Once on This Island, Seussical and Lucky Stiff), and noted playwright Terrence McNally, Ragtime is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.
Ragtime The Musical is an expansive musical portrait of early-twentieth-century America that tells the story of three families in pursuit of the American Dream. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.
Ragtime The Musical opens Friday, March 13 at BDT Stage in Boulder, CO. Previews at discounted ticket prices start Saturday, March 7.
