PLAY DISCUSSION CLUB: RAGTIME

January 20 @ 5:30 pm 6:30 pm

Join us as we prepare for this spring’s Once on This Island by visiting one of Ahrens and Flaherty’s earlier works: Ragtime!

Based on the novel of the same name by E.L. Doctrow, Ahrens and Flaherty’s Ragtime is a compelling epic capturing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century. Tracking three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream in the volatile “melting pot” of turn-of-the-century New York, Ragtime confronts the dialectic contradictions inherent in American reality: experiences of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair.

Libretto (script) will be shared virtually with all who sign-up (emailed within 48 hours). Music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube.
