RAGTIME THE MUSICAL
Based on the novel of the same name by E.L. Doctrow, Ahren’s and Flaherty’s Tony award-winning musical Ragtime is a compelling epic capturing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century.
The play's beautiful score and deeply moving lyrics have found new meaning elsewhere in our current moment. Ragtime deals with discrimination and social inequality; sadly, this work of art could not be more relevant than today, as we struggle to instill the ideals of fairness and justice in our society and institutions. As the piece demonstrates, art has the capacity to teach us about ourselves, our communities, and to build community.
