Ragtime is a musical that focuses on turn-of-the-century New York and three different groups of people trying to live in those times: African-Americans, upper-class, and Eastern European immigrants.  Various famous people, including Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, and others, are also portrayed in the production.  
 
Following Ragtime, Centerstage will present Company, which will take place beginning in January.
