EXPERIENCE AN EPIC
Based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, Ragtime: The Musical transports us to the early twentieth century. First, we visit New Rochelle, New York to meet a well-to-do white family: Mother, Father, their son Edgar, Mother's Younger Brother, and Grandfather. Next, we go to Harlem to meet Coalhouse Walker Jr., a ragtime pianist, and his admirers. Immigrants arrive at Ellis Island and we meet Tateh, an artist who makes silhouettes, and his little girl. These characters’ lives intertwine as an epic battle for humanity and justice courses through New York City in the era of ragtime music, asking what it truly means to live in America.
