Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre continues its celebrated 2014-2015 season with a regional premiere production of the Tony Award-winning musical Ragtime from January 28 – February 22, 2015. This sweeping musical portrait of early 20th century America tells the powerful tale of a white, upper-middle class family, an African American couple, and an Eastern European immigrant escaping to America with his daughter, as they all confront the timeless contradictions of wealth, poverty, freedom, prejudice, hope, and despair in pursuit of the American Dream. Unfolding through the fiery rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, and the vibrant klezmer of the Lower East Side, this vivid and unforgettable Tony-winning score bursts onto the stage in what will be the largest and most epic production ever staged at the Miracle Theatre.

Based on E.L. Doctorow’s award-winning book of the same name, Ragtime features music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, and book by Terrence McNally. Directed by award-winning Artistic Director David Arisco, Ragtime features a cast of 40 professional actors.
