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

“Non-stop sidesplitting comedy and daredevil stunts!” Ontario Standard FreeHolder
“Legitimate physical dexterity and bad boy clowning for 60 some minutes of one-ring (half-ring?) entertainment.” Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Canadian duo Jean Saucier and Laurence Smythe offer an evening that has pleased family audiences all over the world, including at numerous Canadian festivals, Las Vegas and tours to Japan, France and Hungary. Both artists performed with the prestigious Cirque du Soleil before creating their own two-man circus in 1998.
For most of the performance, rubber-faced Smythe is a prankster in the mold of Red Skelton, Charlie Chaplin and Robin Williams, a bumbling but lovable assistant to the more serious equilibrist Saucier, who is a master of classical circus skills including sword balancing, unicycle tricks, magic and juggling. The pair creates a fast-paced revue format that has been described as a cartoon-like action adventure performed live on stage.
