BWW Review: Powerful Cast Moves Audiences With RAGTIME at Plant City EntertainmentBWW Review: Powerful Cast Moves Audiences With RAGTIME at Plant City Entertainment
by Drew Eberhard - Feb 17, 2019

A classic musical based on a novel of the same name by E.L. Doctorow, with a stunning book by Terrance McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty, and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens is something of a poignant resonance that the audience of Friday evening's performance was to bear witness to. Leading the cast of a whopping 45 people was Orchestra Conductor Joseph Scarborough. From the moment the overture began you were swept away into a moment in history not much unlike the current climate in which we find ourselves today. The actors hit the stage donning varying shades of white period pieces and they looked stunning. Props to the costume crew and Beverly Mercer for the stunning display that carried on throughout the production, donning actors/actresses in period wear is no easy feat and this is one truly worth commending.

BWW Review: RAGTIME Revival Couldn't Come at a Better TimeBWW Review: RAGTIME Revival Couldn't Come at a Better Time
by Ellen Dostal - Feb 15, 2019

How do you scale down an epic musical like RAGTIME for a smaller stage and a different time? When it opened at the Shubert Theatre in Century City in 1997, the cast numbered nearly fifty, the same as it would for its Broadway debut later that year. The stage was enormous and the production filled every inch of it. I still remember how the sheer volume of the choral numbers gave me chills. (more...)
