Called by Time Magazine, “A triumph for the stage,” and by the International Herald Tribune, “the best musical in twenty years,” this acclaimed musical won 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations. It also won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Ragtime invites huge scenic, costuming and technical treatments, but critics have sometimes found it lacking in humanity for that very reason. The show really does have a heart and we’re excited about staging it in a more intimate space than the show is often performed in.
RAGTIME is a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America, and a relevant tale for today. Based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, one upper middle-class white, one socialist immigrant Jewish and one Harlem black family who also encounter historical characters such as Booker T. Washington, Emma Goldman, Henry Ford, Evelyn Nesbit, J.P Morgan and Harry Houdini. 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 show will be performed by an expansive, multi-cultural, intergenerational cast.
Dale Ricardo Shields (Ragtime – Director) is a member of Actors Equity Association, Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Artist, American Guild of Musical Artist and Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers. He received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees (summa cum laude) from Ohio University. He is an Associate Board member of Audelco and Archivist of the Iforcolor.org website.
