RALEIGH MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM—Ragtime remains something of a musical-theater miracle. Though the Tony Award-winning 1988 stage adaptation of E.L. Doctorow's sprawling best seller has one of the largest casts of any musical ever staged, it's surprisingly nimble, tuneful and faithful to the social conscience in the original text. Doctorow captured the winds of change, and the major American schisms in class, race and ethnicity at the turn of the last century, in a tale of three fatefully interconnected families. North Carolina Theatre produced its own memorable version in 2004. This time, it co-presents Phoenix Entertainment's national touring version with Broadway Series South. 7:30 p.m. Wed.–Sun.; 2 p.m. Sat.–Sun., $25–$107, 2 E. South St., Raleigh, 919-831-6941, www.nctheatre.com. —Byron Woods

Price: $25-$77
