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 the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. Learn More

This is a highly entertaining, sharply-paced, smart play. You won't be disappointed. The ACTING is amazing! The play itself is slightly didactic and skewed in one direction, but it still gets you to think. Clever effects, too. A fun evening out, overall.

Great show. Didn't know what to expect from it, but Taper has had an amazing season this year so I just bought a ticket and went. Glad I did! Exceptional acting, stunning set, and a play that left me thinking about time, the universe, and everything.
