Ragtime

April 16 - 28

THE HOBBY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

Book by Terrence McNally

Music by Stephen Flaherty

Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Based on the novel "Ragtime" by E. L. Doctorow

"With a cast that rivals that of many Broadway shows, I can only wonder if this is one of the best performances TUTS has produced." —Houston Chronicle

“From the stage to the stars who populate it, this TUTS production might be the best adaptation of a novel ever.” –Houstonia

“Theatre Under the Stars has done a great service by this revival. While minimal yet efficient, the show has class and looks gorgeous… Ragtime is the face of America, with its flaws and blemishes, its ideals quashed or radiantly realized, its beauties and disappointments. Anyone with a dream is welcomed.” –HoustonPress

"At its core, it is a heart-wrenching story of change, love, and acceptance. Go see Ragtime. Take your kids. Take your grandparents. For anyone with a beating heart will exit the theatre a better person." –Broadway World 

A SWEEPING MUSICAL PORTRAIT OF AMERICA

Based on E.L. Doctorow’s powerful book about immigrants and the fight for the American soul in the early twentieth century, Ragtime is a deeply moving musical. Featuring a Tony Award®-winning score and book, Ragtime is set at a time when worlds and cultures are colliding on issues of race, class, gender equality, and politics. This ensemble musical takes a look at the past and, in it, we see our present – and the opportunities for our future.

Ragtime is directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who was nominated for a Tony Award® for Best Direction for the 2009 Broadway revival of Ragtime.

Tickets start at just $30.

Runtime: 2 hours, 40 minutes, including one intermission.
