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

The History of Sanford Meisner’s Acting Class
is a remarkable, unforgettable theatrical experience. Once the audience enters the theater, they’re no longer audience members—they are students in the same acting class attended by Joanne Woodward, Robert Duvall, Gregory Peck, Mary Steenburgen, Grace Kelly, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Geraldine Page, Sydney Pollack, Mark Rydell and other famous actors whose lives were forever changed by Sanford Meisner.
One of the most unique aspects of the production are the six sections where video, projected via rear-screen, dissolves up through black scrim of “students” doing scene work. These segments are from actual teaching exchanges between Sanford Meisner and his students, which have been restaged using Meisner-trained actors, then shot and edited in such a way that the classroom seems to come to life.
