    Book Terrence McNally
    Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty
    Based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow
    New Orchestrations by Matt Deitchman
    Directed by Scott Weinstein

    A newly orchestrated chamber version of the Tony Award-winning musical performed with two pianos, a wind instrument and 20 actors. Griffin premieres this new version created by director Scott Weinstein and music director Matt Deitchman. The musical, based on the 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, is set at the dawn of a new century where the lives of three distinct American families from different backgrounds intersect in their search for the American dream. Part history lesson—part family saga, Ragtime asks us think about racism, immigration, social justice, wage inequality and the role of women in society in a changing America.


    Kelly Parker – Casting Director
