The Duke University Departments of Theater, Music and Dance in collaboration with Hoof 'n' Horn proudly present the Tony Award-winning musical Ragtime. Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, Ragtime offers a unique combination of modern musical theater with a classic American music. Ragtime follows three groups in collision at the dawn of 20th Century America. The lives of a family of upper-class WASPs in suburban New York, an African-American couple in Harlem, and a small immigrant family in the Lower East Side all intersect as they all search for success in America. Exhilarating and exciting, Ragtime offers a story for the whole family. Please join us in celebrating this unprecedented partnership as Duke students and faculty pay homage to a fusion of marches, cakewalks, gospel and of course, ragtime.
