The Brandywiners, Ltd. presents Ragtime

The Brandywiners, Ltd. presents Ragtime
Ragtime The Musical is a musical portrait of early-twentieth-century America. It tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. 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. The Tony Award winning score is just as diverse as the melting pot of America itself, drawing upon many musical styles: from the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley to the klezmer of the Lower East Side, from bold brass band marches to delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes to period parlor songs and expansive anthems.

Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Once on This Island, Seussical and Lucky Stiff), noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, Ragtime is the winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by TIME Magazine "A triumph for the stage," and by the International Herald Tribune "the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other.

Ragtime The Musical is produced by The Brandywiners Ltd. The production team includes:
  • Stage Direction by Jeffrey Santoro
  • Musical Direction by Joseph Louden
  • Assistant Stage Direction by Deb Johnson
  • Assistant Musical Direction by Kelly Kline
  • Choreography by Dominic Santos
