Comments from published critics
‘‘"Timely, stunning, uplifting and exhilarating. Beautifully sung by an impeccable cast and played with exquisite dimension. This is musical theater at its most vibrant. Ragtime conveys hope, opportunity and success. A transporting sensory experience."’’
‘‘"Dazzling. This rich incarnation is grounded in reality. A wonderful blend of nostalgia, anger, patriotism and hard-won idealism. Marcia Milgrom Dodge's staging is superior and she has corralled a first-rate ensemble. Grade: A"’’
‘‘"Striking and vivid! The stirring score has moments of true magic! (Four stars)"’’
‘‘"A supple cast under Marcia Milgrom Dodge's vibrant direction. Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's songs are well-crafted and genuinely soulful. Terrence McNally's book tugs at your heart and conscience with such artful aggression that only an ogre could resist the urge to weep at some points and smile at others."’’
‘‘"Ragtime is brilliantly reborn on Broadway! It's nothing short of a masterpiece."’’
