121 Broadway, San Diego, 92101
Cost: $30 - $70
San Diego Musical Theatre's production of the musical -- Terrence McNally (book), Stephen Flaherty (music), and Lynn Ahrens' (lyric) -- is as good as Ragtime can be. Combining real and fictional characters at the turn of the 20th century, the story raises still-unanswered questions about racial discrimination and an inefficient legal system. Director and choreographer Paul David Bryant played Swing in the original Broadway production, and has directed it seven times. This long history shows in the SDMT production. All elements balance so well. Critic's Pick.
