RAGTIME THE MUSICAL Heading To London's Landor Theatre In September

Ragtime the Musical was nominated for an incredible 13 Tony Awards on its Broadway premiere in 1996 and a 2009 revival earned a further 7 Tony Award nominations. Its West End premiere in 2003 led to Maria Friedman being named Best Actress in the Olivier Awards.

Now a major London revival, with a 6-week season at the Landor Theatre from September 1 - October 8, promises to be one of the most exciting musical theatre events of the year.

It is the turn of the twentieth century in New York. An era is exploding. A century is spinning. And the people are moving in rhythm and rhyme to the music of Ragtime.

Based on the novel by E.L Doctorow, Terrence McNally’s script weaves together the story of  three groups in America, represented by Coalhouse Walker Jr, a Harlem musician; Mother and her family in New Rochelle; and Tateh, a Jewish immigrant who has come to America with his daughter seeking a new life. It features many historical figures, including Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, JP Morgan and Henry Ford.

Ragtime the Musical has a book by Terrence McNally, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, and music by Stephen Flaherty.

Casting to be announced soon.

The production is directed by Landor Theatre Artistic Director Robert McWhir (Follies, I Love You Because, Closer Than Ever).

The Musical Director is George Dyer, currently working on The Wiz, a co-production between Birmingham Repertory Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse.

Produced by John W Carter and Jason Ferguson in association with the Landor Theatre.
