Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, September 28, 2012. . . The countdown to the closing of The Shaw’s Ragtime begins this weekend. With only 11 performances left and fewer than 900 tickets available, time is running out to experience the most buzzed about musical of the summer.

Reviews have described it as “a splendid gift for theatergoers” (Postmedia News), “powerful” (Niagara Falls Review), “enthralling” (Toronto Star), “flawless” (Buffalo News), “a strong, moving and full-throated production” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) and “an impressive pageant about America” (The Globe and Mail).
