Ragtime at Trinity Rep 

Sunday is the final performance of Ragtime at Trinity Rep. 

The show reflects America at the turn of the 20th century – where optimism and possibility are as prevalent as burgeoning racial and social volatility. The lives of an upper-class white mother, a Jewish immigrant, and a bold African American musician from Harlem intersect in ways that profoundly affect their families’ fates.

A passionate, vibrant, Tony Award-winning score heightens the tenderness and tension that infuses these characters’ lives.
