"AND THERE WAS DISTANT MUSIC, SIMPLE AND SOMEHOW SUBLIME, GIVING
THE NATION A NEW SYNCOPATION - THE PEOPLE CALLED IT RAGTIME!"
ABOUT THE SHOW
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing... and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair... and what it means to live in America.
