Having been a history major in college, and having worked with the
retirees of the ILGWU, Ladies Garment Workers Union, many of whom were immigrants, my background is steeped in this history. I felt that the development of the characters was superficial. I didn't connect on a gut level with any of them. It was difficult to understand many of the lyrics because of the operetta style of the performance. The staging, and the set was wonderful, and I did get the "feel" of the tenements, and lower East Side.The only song that really moved me was the "Kaddish" and its reference to the horriffic Triangle Fire in 1911. I was looking forward to being more "involved" in the story of "Rags" and am sorry to say that I wasn't.
