Photo Coverage: Inside The Party - RAGTIME Celebrates Opening Night at Barrington Stage Co.

Opening night theatre goers celebrated with Elizabeth Stanley Darnell Abraham, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, David Harris, J. Anthony Crane, Zurin Villanueva, Cast, Creative, Lynn Ahrens, and the staff of Barrington Stage Co. last night and Broadwayworld was there for the festivities.

At the dawn of the 20th century when everything is changing...and anything is possible, Ragtime weaves together three distinctly American tales - a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician - united by their courage, compassion and their belief in obtaining the American Dream. Winner of Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Musical Score, this exhilarating, dazzling musical is a timeless celebration of the American Spirit.

The award-winning theatre in Downtown Pittsfield, MA under the leadership of Artistic Director JuliAnne Boyd, will present the Tony-winning musical Ragtime through July 15 on the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage.
