I was on a business trip to Toronto and got to go to the first preview (first public performance) of RAGTIME, in its pre-Broadway run. I loved the book and movie, and was excited to see it as a musical. I, too, will never forget that opening number. Stunning. And then "Wheels of a Dream" later in the show.... I later saw the show on Broadway, the revival, some high school productions, a stunning version at French Woods when one of my kids was a camper there. And, finally, another stunning version at Serenbe (see the other thread about the unfortunate behind the scenes story there). EVERY SINGLE PRODUCTION of RAGTIME-- even the more conceptual ones in tents or in black boxes-- has been wonderful. Watching kids perform it-- ostensibly performing their great-grandparents stories-- is particularly moving. I think it's one of the most underrated musicals.
