Mum and I saw Ragtime the Musical on Saturday afternoon. We loved it and we thought that the music and singing was amazing. The cast were excellent and the costumes were just beautiful.
The story of Ragtime is about the lives and destinies of three ethnic groups and how they intersect, crossing various cultural, social and economic divides. It is a very sad story at times.
I heard about Ragtime for the first time when I saw that Audra McDonald was in the original 1998 Broadway Production and that is how I discovered it. This production was done by the Production Company at the Arts Centre.
The opening song Ragtime was so beautiful and well done. The Ragtime Orchestra were terrific and the cast were sensational. The cast had such wonderful voices.
I gave it a 9 out of 10.
