Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, Ragtime
the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Called by Time Magazine
"a triumph for the stage," and by the International Herald Tribune
"the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical won the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and captured both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Youth Musical Theater Company brings together a cast of talented youths from seventh grade through college level to present this show featuring a melting pot of musical styles to tell of life in turn-of-the-century America -- a story that remains equally relevant today.
