With famous characters, brilliant costumes and haunting music, Ragtime creates a dazzling diorama of turn-of-the-century New York, teeming with the raw energy of a still-young nation. Based on E.L. Doctorow's acclaimed novel, this melting pot drama is told from the perspective of three ethnically diverse families whose fates unexpectedly intertwine. Real-life figures like Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, Henry Ford and Emma Goldman make surprising and often illuminating cameo appearances throughout this "triumph for the stage" (Time magazine). With music and lyrics by the Tony Award-winning team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the production boasts a Tony Award-winning book by Terrence McNally and such memorable songs as "Getting Ready Rag," "Wheels of a Dream," "Till We Reach That Day" and "Make Them Hear You." Now 3-D Theatricals brings a new production to Plummer Auditorium. Learn More
Irving Berlin once summed up the pair’s achievement with his famous rhyming maxim: “Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart—-music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart.” The Rodgers/Hart partnership resulted in the scores for 30 stage musicals and nine films. (Rodgers, of course, later worked with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.)
“Beguiled Again” is a cleverly compiled revue of songs and vignettes. One sequence evokes the frenzy of the “Hollywood Machine” with the studio employees racing from one picture to another and a most unlikely starlet who gets “discovered.” A live radio show is presented replete with the slick host, trio of songbirds, and overwrought stage manager who provides all the sound effects including a tap number with the shoes on his hands.
The show’s limited Southern California tour is produced by Broadway singer/actress Teri Ralston, who also performs in the revue. Ralston was featured in the original Broadway casts of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” and “A Little Night Music.”
