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

They’re an incorrigible group of political spoofers who put new words to familiar songs like George Bush singing “Don’t Go Fakin’ You’re Smart” to the tune of Elton John’s “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart” — they’re self-proclaimed Equal Opportunity Offenders!
The only group claiming to be funnier than the U.S. Congress, they take a humorously bipartisan look at serious issues through hilarious songs and sketches.
