Maverick Theatre Company presents Ragtime
Ragtime is set at the dawn of a new century in New York, everything is changing ... and anything is possible. Three distinctly American tales are woven together, that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician, united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Directed by Dr. Anne Healy, Associate Professor and Associate Department Chair.
