Ragtime at the Historic Strand Theater in Dorchester, MA. produced by Fiddlehead Theatre.

Terrence McNally’s Ragtime: The Musical is an amazing, period piece of musical theatre. With Fiddlehead Theatre Company’s extensive sets and costumes, the show really comes alive.

I had the pleasure of capturing the performance on the Strand Theatre stage in Boston.

These images were created specifically to be sent out to theater reviewers and for use on the Fiddlehead Theatre Company’s social media channels.
