Ragtime — Nominee for Best Revival of a Musical

November 15, 2009

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.
