Ragtime tells the tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in New York in 1910. It originally opened at Broadway's Mark Hellinger Theatre in 1986, but closed after only four performances.
It is produced by Aria Entertainment and Knockhardy Productions, whose previous West End charity concerts include Children of Eden at The Prince of Wales Theatre and Cinderella Boom or Bust at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
