Tiny "Ragtime"

One of my favorite contemporary musicals is Ragtime--I saw its U.S. premiere in L.A. an inordinate number of times (and found that production, which starred Brian Stokes Mitchell, LaChanze, Marcia Mitzman Gaven and John Dossett, superior to the later Broadway production), and I've had the pleasure of reviewing it a few times. So it was a pleasant surprise to read that it's getting a splendid, can-do 99-seat revival in L.A. Make them hear you, indeed.
