Griffin premieres this new version created by director Scott Weinstein and music director Matt Deitchman. The musical, based on the 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, is set at the dawn of a new century where the lives of three distinct American families from different backgrounds intersect in their search for the American dream. Part history lesson—part family saga, Ragtime asks us to think about racism, immigration, social justice, wage inequality and the role of women in society in a changing America.
2hr 30min (inc. intermission)
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
