Shout out to the cast & crew of Drury Lane Oakbrook’s terrific production of Ragtime—winner of SEVEN awards @ last night’s Jeff Ceremony including Best [Large] Musical & Best Director!
I wrote about the DLO’s new Ragtime in the top spot of my May ’10 JUF News column, praising it & including quotes from my follow-up interview with director (& now Jeff winner) Rachel Rockwell.
Hopefully this acclaim will lead to more productions all around the country. Altho Broadway doesn’t seem to know it, here in the heartland Ragtime really resonates!
