Seeing some recent posts about Ragtime got me wondering whether or not it can and will be revived on Broadway in the future without essentially cutting or modifying the celebratory Henry Ford character and the "Henry Ford" number. Ford who it has been more widely publicized in recent years was a virulent racist and antisemite, so I wonder if it can (or should) be staged again without edits to that part of the book/score. Or even if it can be touched given that Terrence McNally is no longer with us. Anyway, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this, as I would love to see this show revived in the near future!
