Ragtime — Nominee for Best Revival of a Musical

Opened:
November 15, 2009

Closed:
January 10, 2010

The Story:
The musical follows the intersecting lives of three Americans (and their families) in the early part of the 20th century: Harlem piano man Coalhouse Walker Jr., WASP matriarch Mother of New Rochelle and Jewish immigrant Tateh.

Based On:
E.L. Doctorow’s 1975 novel of the same name

Show History:
Ragtime premiered in Toronto in 1996, then played in Los Angeles before opened at Broadway’s Ford Center for the Performing Arts on January 18, 1998. The lavish $11 million production (which won four Tony Awards, but lost out to The Lion King for Best Musical) was a stark contrast to this recent revival, which was almost skeletal in its staging.

Other Honors:
—Broadway.com Audience Award nomination for Favorite Broadway Musical Revival
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Musical
—Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Musical
—Drama League Award nomination for Distinguished Revival of a Musical

Fun Fact:
Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who made her debut as director/choreographer of Ragtime, previously worked on Broadway as an assistant to choreographer Lar Lubovitch on the 1998 flop High Society.
