Ragtime is the epic story of three very different families whose lives become intertwined at the turn of the 20th century. Their stories unfold across a colourful and vibrant era characterised by explosive music and a people determined to succeed and celebrate. Brimming with irrepressible characters both fictional and real-life, Ragtime is a unique, sweeping and, above-all, life-affirming story about the choices we face in life and how we become the people we are.
This brand new production of Ragtime, freshly conceived and designed for its West End premiere, features an orchestra of 20 and a cast of 38, including British musical stars Maria Friedman, Dave Willetts and Graham Bickley and the outstanding Broadway performer Kevyn Morrow who takes the role of American ragtime pianist and revolutionary Coalhouse Walker Jnr.
