Ragtime: The Musical

Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, & Book by Terrence McNally

Presented in Association with Flint Repertory Theatre

JULY 11-20

The timeless musical masterpiece celebrates the soaring sounds and can-do spirit of America at the dawn of the last century.  To the syncopated rhythms of a hopeful new age, this unforgettable theatrical tapestry interweaves the delights of vaudeville, baseball, and old-time nickelodeons with the hurly-burly of labor rallies and racial unrest, tracign the lives of an enterprising Jewish immigrant, a courageous Harlem pianist, and a conflicted upper-class wife in a jubilant, inclusive tribute to the American Dream.  An epic tale, adapted from E. L. Doctorow’s sweeping novel, beautifully rendered on the Hangar’s intimate stage.

“A triumph for the stage.” –TIME magazine
