Zack Fine returns to put his madcap spin on one of Shakespeares most hilarious comedies. This riotous combination of love at first sight, feisty cross-dressing heroines, and a parade of foolish lovers, melodic songs, and questionable poetry is bound to bring the laughs.

BWW Review: RAGTIME, PlayMakers Repertory Company
December 06, 2019
RAGTIME is a musical that is as relevant now as it was in 1998 when it premiered and the production currently on at PlayMakers Repertory Company makes that abundantly clear. While the show might be set in the state of New York in 1906, it makes statements about immigration, race relations, corrupt justice, and women's rights that continue to ring true today. Director Zi Alikhan stages the show as you've never seen before, cutting away the period clothing and elaborate setting to focus on its brilliant music and lyrics and the poignant themes it explores. The new 360 degree theatre layout puts the audience firmly into the action, letting them get even closer to the characters than in a normal show.
