Based on E.L. Doctorow’s celebrated novel, «Ragtime» is an epic Tony-winning musical that depicts three families striving for the American dream at the turn of the 20th century. As the country balances on the cusp of social change, the lives of a wealthy white family, a daring Harlem musician and a determined Jewish immigrant intersect—and their fates are inextricably bound and profoundly changed. With an expansive musical score, striking relevancy and a who’s who of 20th-century historical characters, “Ragtime” confronts both the unbridled optimism and the stark reality of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Peter Flynn (“1776,” “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”) directs an all-star D.C. cast including Kevin McAllister, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Nova Y. Payton and Jonathan Atkinson.
