i just joined. i love the show ragtime, i performed in it in hs freshman year and we toured with it to scotland. it was an amazing experience. we also did a 1 time performance in august before we left for europe (we did it earlier in may too) and we sold out a 1,000 seat, $100,000,000 million dollar theatre. (im not even making up that number, its the egg in albany, its a crazy place)
we had to cut the show down to 90 minutes for scotland tho.
heres a video of one of our rehearsals.http://www.ahs.albany.k12.ny.us/AHS/clubs/drama/2002/ragvid.html
this was our first time doing this song in like 3 months.

Hey everyone. I just joined the group. I remember seeing the cast of Ragtime perform a number for the TOny's the year they were nominated and I just fell in love with that ONE song and decided that I had to have the soundtrack. So, not too long thereafter, I owned that and listened to it repeatedly. It was only about 3 years ago that I actually got to see the show, live, in person, in Detroit and I have to say, I was BLOWN AWAY!! Needless to say, I LOVE THIS MUSICAL!!! Ok, just wanted to say hey. :) Current Mood: chipper

Would anyone be willing to send me "make them hear you"? I know I should have the cd, but it's for a presentation for my music class and I remember singing it in choir in highschool, I'm desperate! Thanks so much :)

Do any of you know of any different version of Ragtime
songs? Recorded by peoples not in the original cast? I know Patti LuPone did Back to Before
, but don't know of anything else. Meep. I do love the Patti, but I kinda like the Marin better. I have this thing about liking the originals best, though...except in Les Miserables. Frances Ruffelle. *shudders*

6 degrees of separation (or less)...
So I go to Stanford, and Monday night was faculty night, and my friend invited the social dance teacher, because she's in Social Dance 1. And I signed up to sit at his table, and I ended up having a personal conversation with him for over and hour. So why am I posting this in the ragtime community?
Richard Powers started a vintage dance group in 1982, with a nine-piece orchestra, including a piano. His first pianist was a young genius, none other than Steven Flaherty, taking his first job.
So this awesome man who I will hopefully be taking a class from next quarter was responsible for Steven Flaherty's opening to his career... and he went on to compose the most amazing musical of all time... how awesome is that??? :-D
I am so excited for this community! Ragtime is my all time favorite show! I adore Marin Mazzie and Brian Stokes Mitchell. I am so excited!! yay!!!!!!!

Hullo. I am the Tani. Yay for Tani. Anyways, I am an obsessive theatre buff and valkyrie in training...which is beside the point. I've seen a local performance of Ragtime twice...the vocals were kinda dissapointing, but it was still a spectacular show. Woot. Read the book, but have only seen part of the movie. Woot to all versions. The first song I heard from the show was "Back to Before." After that, I knew I needed the complete soundtrack. Missed a touring production...that happened to me with Sunset Boulevard as well. Tis about all...ta for now.

Ragtime is the best thing ever written, adapted, performed... *dies* :-D I'm Alex. One of my dreams for when I'm a professional director and *hopefully* owner of a theatre company is to direct ragtime. It's the most beautiful thing... ever. :-D
