4th of July Fireworks Have Arrived Early! Ragtime Will Return to Broadway Oct. 23

A show that I absolutely loved is coming back to Broadway! Applause has just confirmed that Ragtime, the Tony Award-winning musical that fans say got a too-short Broadway run after its 1998 launch — in the same season as The Lion King — is coming back to the Great White Way.

The news has been buzzed about for weeks, and on July 1 producers made it official: The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' recent all-new and critically acclaimed production of Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's Ragtime, based on the E.L. Doctorow novel, featuring direction and choreography by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, will begin Broadway previews Oct. 23 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Opening is Nov. 15.
Casting and ticketing information will be announced soon. Members of the Kennedy Center company will likely be offered their roles again.

Celebrate this brand-new production of the acclaimed Broadway musical Ragtime! Turn back the clock to the start of the 20th century--a time when anything was possible and ragtime music was king! For many, New York City was the land of opportunity. A poor Jewish immigrant sells his "moving picture" books on the street. A wealthy Victorian couple welcomes a runaway into their home. A Harlem jazz pianist turns an issue of justice into a revolution. One by one, their personal journeys come alive as historic figures offer guidance and diversion--among them escape artist Harry Houdini, auto tycoon Henry Ford, famed educator Booker T. Washington, and chorus girl Evelyn Nesbit. Together, their stories celebrate the struggle between tradition and independence… black and white… old and new… all in pursuit of the American dream. With its cast of vibrant characters, vivid sets and costumes, and Tony Award–winning book and score, Ragtime is the can't-miss theater event of the Fall 2009!
