In 2009, the Kennedy Center’s production of Ragtime moved to Broadway. Adapted from E.L. Doctorow’s best-selling novel, this is the epic tale of three families caught in the cross currents of a changing century and the conflicts of the American dream.
The revival was directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge.
Subsequently, the show was performed in concert at New York City’s Avery Fisher Hall on February 18, 2013, directed by Stafford Arima.

“Musical-theater storytelling at its most vibrant.”
