The classic Broadway musical Ragtime makes a triumphant return to London this year as Thom Southerland directs the show at the Charing Cross Theatre as part of his new role as the venue’s Artistic Director.
Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s popular show was first seen in Toronto in 1996 and gained its Broadway premiere two years later. It finally found its way to the West End in 2003 when it was staged at the Piccadilly Theatre.
But now it’s the turn of the Charing Cross Theatre to portray this story of the ragtime music scene in the early days of the 20th century. We follow the characters of Mother, Tateh and Coalhouse Walker as they experience this new music form.
Thom Southerland has helmed numerous shows across the capital and beyond and his new appointment as Artistic Director of the Charing Cross Theatre sees him direct this and the musical Titanic, the latter of which appears in May. His other credits include State Fair at the Trafalgar Studios, The Full Monty at the Charing Cross Theatre (when it was going by its old name of the New Players Theatre), Mack And Mabel at the Southwark Playhouse and Parade, also at the Southwark Playhouse.
With Ragtime he tackles a Tony Award-winning hit that is bound to cause a stir as it return to London. Audiences can catch the musical when it runs at the Charing Cross Theatre from Saturday 8th October 2016.
