The patriotic American musical that shows how rewarding it is to live in America so long as you're an Immigrant or a White Person but Definitely Not Black.

My college did Ragtime a few years back and they somehow got Stephen Flaherty to come watch a rehearsal. Someone asked him about why they didn't include the lesbian/voyeur scene between Goldman, Nesbit, and Younger Brother and his answer was that they only wanted scenes that focused on the three main characters (Mother, Coalhouse, and Tateh). Which doesn't make much sense seeing as there are already scenes that don't include those three characters...

Great abridgement. Love Tateh's assertion that he created Little Rascals (but don't go look it up no Wikipedia!)
