Ragtime To Close This Sunday

It was just announced that the 2009 revival of Ragtime will play it's final performance on January 3, 2010. When it closes it will have played 28 previews and 57 regular performances. This new revival is based on the critically acclaimed production that opened to rave reviews earlier this year at the Kennedy Center. Expectations were high but mixed reviews and poor ticket sales sealed it's doom after a disappointing seven week run. I myself did not see the show after having been underwhelmed by the 1998 production. Having said that I had hoped it would have a longer run as it is a great show for all ages and it was a nice alternative to shows like Wicked and The Lion King. Will we ever see it again? Probably not. Let's just hope it doesn't discourage other producers in the future from taking chances on shows like Ragtime.Until next time theatre fans.
