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

Worthwhile production of Othello by the NT. Kinnear was wonderful as Iago; Lester was good as Othello. The setting in modern-day Iraq was fairly successful, though I don't believe it mattered too much. For me the female parts were not done as well but if you are interested in Shakespeare, you should see this if only for Kinnear's amazing performance.
Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle_) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (_The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall_), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (_Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
