For years, George Schiavone has been documenting life back stage. Since the beginning of rehearsals of Actors’ Playhouse’s Ragtime, he has been shooting photos of the rehearsal and production process. His shots document the sweat, concentration and even boredom required of theatrical artists.
As far as large-scale Broadway musicals, Ragtime stands as Actors’ finest mainstream work ever, as accessible and satisfying as it is passionate and thoughtful. Anyone who cares about musical theater, or theater in general, should make a special effort to see this production.
