Ragtime - 2012 - West End

In a striking, bold and ambitious new production, triple Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Best Musical Revival 2010, 2011, 2012) adds a contemporary twist to this powerful musical.



As the strains of ragtime music are heard on an old record player, a father tells his son a story; a story of hope set at the turn of the 20th century; of a Harlem pianist, a white middle-class family and a Latvian immigrant, whose dreams of a better world shape their destiny.
