The Lyric Theatre production at the Strand Theatre was incredible! I wish it ran longer so I could invite more to see it. Everything from set design to a cast that had amazing voices had the audience in the palm of their hand. "Ragtime" is one of my all time favorite musicals and I have seen it 4 times in 4 different series in 3 different states (including the Broadway production back in 1997). This rivaled the NYC show even with the simplified set and slightly smaller cast. The standout (and there were so many) was the actress who played "Mother", one of the leads. The original actress fell suddenly ill before the show. The Stage Manager filled in with script in hand (she had never played the part but was very familiar with the show) and she nailed every song and every piece of dialogue!!! The audience was in awe of her stellar performance! I hope the Strand brings "Ragtime back SOON!!!!!
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, Ragtime weaves together three distinctly American tales — that of a stifled suburban mother, an inventive Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician — united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future.
Their compelling stories intertwine to form a rich tapestry of hopes and dreams, struggles and triumphs, rhythm and rhyme, set to an epic, Tony Award-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. A colossal stage show based on the classic E. L. Doctorow novel, Ragtime also features a Tony Award-winning book by Terrence McNally.
