Strung together by a beautifully interwoven musical score, the stories of three families in 20th century America captivate the ears and heart in Ragtime. None other than Ahrens and Flaherty could recreate the sound of the American melting pot by blending traditional Jewish music with classic Vaudeville jingle and, of course, sultry jazz. The ultimate pursuits of the American dream are met with hope, despair, prejudice, perseverance and love in this captivating and compelling musical based on the best selling book by EL Doctorow.
