Ragtime

The show was absolutely phenomenal. I was completely absorbed from the time the curtain opened until it closed.

The set was rather minimalistic. There were a few main planes that hung from the ceiling and could be moved, but otherwise there were no large set pieces. Plain four legged wooden chairs were used in many scenes.

The singing was outstanding.

I had had the luxury of meeting and talking with many of the cast prior to seeing the show. It was a very interesting experience to go to a show with background knowledge of the people on stage but no knowledge of what the play was about. It was like I was simply going to see these people rather than a performance.
