Coming Up...

Ragtime, the Musical
May 6–21

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens
Book by Terrance McNally
Based on the novel, Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow
Directed and Choreographed by Esther Winter
Musical Direction by Andy Pratt

This sweeping musical portrait of early twentieth-century America tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. United by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future they each confront contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair…and what it means to live in America.

With support from
Debby Goldman, Dawn Lipson, and Rita Rudnick.

Crafted from the actual testimonies of Rochester-based Holocaust Survivors, CenterStage Theatre and the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester commissioned this new play to put a human face on this important time in history. A cautionary tale on the risks of normalized hate, this inspirational and uplifting play ensures that the voices of our Survivors will never be silenced.
