Listen to that RAGTIME

It seems my post on the new minimalist production of Camelot has caused some folks to get a little hot under the collar. To set the record straight – particularly to those individuals who’ve reacted in a way that perhaps has allowed their own agenda to compromise their reading of that post – I didn’t say that the production of Ragtime that closes today was a terrible production. I did, in no uncertain terms, state that I felt that particular aspects of the production didn’t measure up to the original production, but despite its shortcomings in that regard, I think it is wonderful that a show like Ragtime can still be produced on Broadway today, albeit at a complete financial loss to its investors. I am sorry that it couldn’t run longer in the current economic and cultural climate in which the Great White Way finds itself today.
