Why See Ragtime?

A Rousing Chicago Revival of Broadway Hit Ragtime

Three incredibly different worlds collide in a riot of color in Ragtime, a musical that explores the birth of modern America through the medium of its music. Written by dynamic award-winning duo Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the original 1998 Broadway production garnered four Tony and four Drama Desk Awards, going on to run for 834 performances. Don't miss this rollicking revival as it comes to Chicago's Marriott Theatre this Winter.

Based on the 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime is set during the dawn of the 20th Century in America, a time of great social upheaval and change. It tells the stories of three diverse characters, all pursuing their idea of the American dream in New York, one of the biggest cultural melting pots of the time. African American musician and Harlem native Coalhouse Walker Jr, upper-class matriarch Mother, and Jewish immigrant Tateh find they have common ground against a musical backdrop filled with the sounds of gospel, cakewalk, frontline marches and of course, ragtime.
