RAGS
A Sweeping Immigrant Saga

Book by Joseph Stein  (Fiddler on the Roof)
Music by Charles Strouse (Annie)
Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked)
Revised Book by David Thompson
Choreographed by Parker Esse (Goodspeed’s Fiddler on the Roof)
Directed by Rob Ruggiero  (Goodspeed’s Fiddler on the Roof, Show Boat)

Welcome to the new world! Fresh from Ellis Island, a young Jewish mother and her son search for lost family and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons. The streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope. A ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie colors a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past. Celebrate our rich roots in Goodspeed’s new adaptation of a neglected masterpiece of the musical theater.
