Say you have a brand new, state-of-the-art theater. What’s the perfect show to open with?
It should be something big. Something that takes advantage of the space, involves as many people as possible and is absolutely electrifying. What do you choose? “Phantom of the Opera”? “Les Misérables”? “The King and I”?
Theatre Lawrence went a different route. Rather than a famous, all-time favorite, they selected “Ragtime,” the musical story of America at the turn of the 20th century.
