Ragtime masterfully investigates the nuances of the American Dream, conveying hope, opportunity and success, but also the ugly flipside of pain, division, confusion and violence.


Why See Ragtime?

Launching the 2017/18 Theatre Tulsa season

Theatre Tulsa launches its 2017/18 season with Ragtime, a much-loved musical that explores themes ranging from immigration to racism and social unrest in the early 20th century. With memorable tunes including "Wheels of a Dream," "Back to Before," "Your Daddy's Son," "New Music" and "Journey On". is a tapestry of New York area life in the first decades of the 20th century. People from radically different walks of life - an African-American family, a Jewish immigrant family and a wealthy suburban WASP family - wach their lives intersect in the aftermath of a crime, with unexpectedly emotional results.

The winner of four Tony Awards during its 1998 Broadway debut production, Ragtime is a grand diorama of early 20th Century American life, featuring appearances from some of the most important figures of the day, including Houdini and Henry Ford, and all shot through with the music of ragtime. It was most recently revived on The Great White Way in 2009, where it once again garnered glowing critical notices.
