Description

A note from director Rachel Rockwell

When I first saw Ragtime in one of its pre-Broadway tryouts more than a decade ago, I knew it was a show I wanted to direct. Epic in scale, this story weaves together such historical figures as Harry Houdini, Emma Goldman, JP Morgan, Henry Ford, Booker T. Washington and Evelyn Nesbit with three fictitious families, one white, one black and one immigrant. Its sweeping score and beautifully woven plot so accurately portray the human condition that more than a century later we see the characters’ struggles and triumphs still mirror our own.
