RAGS The Musical
Book by Joseph Stein | Music by Charles Strouse | Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz | Revised Book by David Thompson
Directed by Bronagh Lagan
RAGS The Musical tells the heart-warming and powerful tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in America. Carolyn Maitland (Ghost UK Tour) stars as Rebecca, leading UK musical theatre star Dave Willetts plays Avram and Sam Attwater (EastEnders, Dancing on Ice) will star as Bronfman.
Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for a new life and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons. The streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope.
With a ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie and the book-writer of Fiddler on the Roof, this is a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past.
This is a transfer of the UK premiere of this eagerly anticipated new version which premiered at Hope Mill Theatre in February 2019 and is directed by Bronagh Lagan (Little Women, Putting It Together, Promises, Promises).
RAGS The Musical is a story of love, loss and hope. Featuring a score celebrating the multicultural music which was filling the streets of New York in 1910. It is a saga of both hope and disappointment, of power and greed, of strength and love, combined with memorable music.
