Critics’ Reviews

"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."

Review by David Rooney from Variety

"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"

Review by Melissa Rose Bernardo from Entertainment Weekly

"Striking and vivid! The stirring score has moments of true magic! (Four stars)"

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News

"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."

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

"Ragtime is brilliantly reborn on Broadway! It's nothing short of a masterpiece."

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg
