RAGTIME

It's the moment I always have to brace myself for in Terrence McNally's Tony-winning musical. At the dawn of an American century in which black lives are only beginning to matter, Coalhouse Walker's beloved, Sarah, has been mistakenly beaten to death by Secret Service guards. We're gathered at her grave. As a church woman intones a hymn, prophetic activist Emma Goldman insists, in grim counterpoint, "It will happen again/ and again and again/ and again." The Justice Theater Project revives this adaptation of the E.L. Doctorow novel in which three interconnected families of different classes, races, and ethnicities navigate the social turbulence of the early twentieth century. —Byron Woods
