RAGTIME Becomes Milwaukee Rep's Bestselling Musical
Milwaukee Repertory Theater (Mark Clements, Artistic Director and Chad Bauman, Managing Director) is pleased to announce that the musical Ragtime, which opened on Saturday, September 21, is already the bestselling musical in The Rep's history after the first week of performances, surpassing the previous record holder, the musical Cabaret (2010/11 Season). Ragtime is also the biggest production ever produced on The Rep's Quadracci Powerhouse stage featuring a cast of 35 actors and 9 musicians. The production continues to run in The Rep's Quadracci Powerhouse through Sunday, October 27.
"I am thrilled that Milwaukee audiences are responding so enthusiastically to our production of Ragtime," said Artistic Director Mark Clements. "Thisplay's epic story and soaring music provides a rousing vehicle to continue important community conversations about identity and our own interpretations of the American Dream, as well as the full scope of the human experience."
Managing Director Chad Bauman added, "As The Rep's new Managing Director, I couldn't be more pleased with the audience response to this production. To see audiences in the Quadracci Powerhouse leap to their feet for standing ovations night after night is thrilling! Besides the epic scope of Ragtime - its quality production values, the outstanding cast, wonderful choreography and uplifting music - the play itself has so many layers to it. There is just so much to take in and experience. We are already finding that this is a play that many people want to see again and again."
