Ragtime is currently playing in Ford’s Theater here in Washington, D.C. I will be seeing it later this week. I am excited as its one of the musicals on my bucket list. Ragtime is based off a book by E.L. Doctorow. Its about the United States during the early part of the 20th century. It deals with immigration, industrialization, radicalization, rise of the robber barons, and more. It infuses historical figures such as Henry Ford to Emma Goldman. Take care guys!
