Rags The Musical tells the heart-warming and powerful tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in America. Carolyn Maitland (Ghost UK Tour) stars as Rebecca, leading UK musical theatre star Dave Willetts plays Avram and Sam Attwater (EastEnders, Dancing on Ice) will star as Bronfman.
Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for a new life 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.
★★★★★“An unforgettable, unique and vibrant treat” Jewish Telegraph

With a ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie and the book-writer of Fiddler on the Roof, this is a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past.
