Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s 27th Season Launches with Tony Award-Winning Musical Ragtime

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival proudly opens its 27th season with the Broadway musical Ragtime, on the Main Stage at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of DeSales University.

Based on E.L. Doctorow’s 1975 novel, and written by  the composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, this acclaimed musical features show-stopping songs such as “Wheels of a Dream,” “Till We Reach That Day,” “Back to Before,” and “Make Them Hear You.” Called by Time Magazine “A triumph for the stage,” “Intoxicating” by the Associated Press, and “Explosive and thrilling!” by Bloomberg News, Ragtime was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and won for best score, book, and orchestrations.
