A sweeping saga of turn-of-the-century America, seen through the eyes of three very different families . . . A heady tale of love lost and won, lives lost and saved and a country struggling to define itself."

Ragtime: Book by Terrence McNally, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty, Based on a 1975 novel Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow, Directed by Jackie Maxwell.

Brief summary of Ragtime (musical) by Tim A of San Diego, CA: "It tells the story of three groups in America, represented by Coalhouse Walker, a Harlem musician; Mother, the matriarch of a WASP family in New Rochelle, NY; and Tateh, a Latvian Jewish immigrant. Historical figures such as Houdini . . . Booker T. Washington, J. P. Morgan, Henry Ford . . . and Emma Goldman also appear. The music includes marches, cakewalks, gospel and ragtime."
