BRIDEWELL THEATRE | 13-23 November 2019


"It was the music
Of something beginning,
An era exploding,
A century spinning
In riches and rags,
And in rhythm and rhyme.
The people called it ragtime…"

AT THE DAWN OF A NEW CENTURY, EVERYTHING IS CHANGING AND ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

Ragtime is a sweeping epic musical about the birth of America that weaves together real celebrities and historical events with a timeless tale of three families in pursuit of the American Dream.

Set in the melting pot of New York, the stories of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician are intertwined, united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair - and what it means to live in America.

A multi award-winning masterpiece from Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, with a book by Terrence McNally, Ragtime is a compelling story of courage, love and hope.

“A triumph for the stage” - Time Magazine

"The Ultimate Musical for Our Time" - Huffington Post

"Explosive and thrilling! Theatre-shaking intensity...Ragtime is nothing short of a masterpiece" - Bloomberg New
