American history comes to life through vibrant song and dance in the Broadway National Tour production of Ragtime. Based in the Big Apple at the turn of the 20th century, the story centers on three characters from different socioeconomic backgrounds, all fighting for a brighter future. Pulled from the pages of E.L. Doctorow’s 1975 novel and set to music by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the play has bagged five Tony Awards and countless fans. From the riveting opening number to the closing of the curtains, songs such as “Henry Ford” and “Wheels of a Dream” burst from the stage, speaking to the rapid change sweeping the United States and the people who made the American Dream a reality.

Price: $25-70.
