Tragic, poignant and ultimately triumphant, Ragtime is a modern classic. Set at the turn of the 20th century, this powerful musical unites three families separated by race and destiny. The timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, and hope and despair, make this a theatre experience not to be missed. Last season’s production of Crazy for You received more five star reviews than any other West End musical that year, and previous productions of Hello,Dolly! and Into the Woods each won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. 3.0

Synopsis
Tragic, poignant and ultimately triumphant, Ragtime is a modern classic. Set at the turn of the 20th century, this powerful musical unites three families separated by race and destiny.

The timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, and hope and despair, make this a theatre experience not to be missed.

Last season’s production of Crazy for You received more five star reviews than any other West End musical that year, and previous productions of Hello,Dolly! and Into the Woods each won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival.
