Based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime weaves the stories of a reunited African-American family, a father and daughter emigrating from Latvia, and a wealthy suburban WASP family in turn-of-the-century America.

The Seattle revival is produced in association with Asolo Repertory Theatre and will officially open October 20.
