California Youth Conservatory presents Ragtime, an epic musical so powerful and moving that it lingers in the mind and heart for years. Ragtime is the story of love, hope, despair and The American Dream, as seen through the eyes of three very different families in turn-of-the-century New York. The Tony Award-winning score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty is just as diverse as the “Melting Pot of America” that it seeks to recreate, drawing upon traditional Jewish folk sounds, Vaudeville’s outrageous style and Scott Joplin to invoke the enlivened spirit of Harlem.
Joan B. Kroc Theatre, 6611 University Ave. in San Diego, 7 p.m., tickets $29, 619-944-7574, cyctheatre.webs.com.
