At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing and anything is possible. Three families - embodied by an upper-class wife, a Jewish immigrant, and a Harlem musician - cross paths and their lives intertwine in pursuit of the American Dream. After a tragedy, people discover they have more in common than anyone thought. Based on the best-selling book by E.L. Doctorow with a Tony Award-winning score, "Ragtime" is a powerful and inspiring portrait of America, and musical theatre storytelling at its finest.
