Revival of 'Ragtime' set to close Sunday on B'way

Revival of 'Ragtime' set to close Sunday on B'way

The sweet, syncopated sounds of "Ragtime" will fall silent Sunday on Broadway.
Producer Kevin McCollum says the $8 million musical will close after a disappointing run of less than two months at the Neil Simon Theatre.
The ambitious revival opened Nov. 15 to generally positive notices but never took off at the box office. "Ragtime" was adapted from E.L. Doctorow's epic novel of early 20th century America.
The musical has a book by Terrence McNally and a score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. It was first seen on Broadway in 1998. The current production originated last spring at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington.
