    Directed by Artistic Director Tim Sheader and based on the 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime tells the tale of three families experiencing the effects of social upheaval, industrialisation, immigration and racism, as they build a life for themselves in New York City at the turn of the 20th century.

    Timothy Sheader’s revival has an ambition to match that of Stephen Flaherty’s music. Visually it’s imposing, with a rubble-strewn set by Jon Bausor that suggests the connections between the present and the 1900s (both transitional phases) while conveying a bleak view of contemporary America.

    In many ways, Sheader and his team have revolutionised how shows are presented at this venue              Michael Coveney

    Staged with all the brilliance you'd expect of a man who has won the Olivier award for best musical revival three years running. Michael Billington
