About the Event
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing … and anything is possible. Ragtime returns to the road in an all-new touring production directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge and produced by the team that most recently brought you The Addams Family, Spamalot and The Color Purple. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, Ragtime weaves together the stories of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician—united by their desire for and belief in a brighter future. Their compelling stories are set to theatre’s richest and most glorious Tony Award©-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. See this American classic Variety calls “simply stunning in every detail” on the WVU Creative Arts Center stage!
Nationally-touring productions exhibit the same quality seen on Broadway that you have come to expect from University Arts Series productions. Some shows use the same sets and costumes from the Broadway production.
