Rags opened on Broadway in the ’80s, with book by Joseph Stein (Fiddler on the Roof), lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and music by Charles Strouse (Annie). Before he died, Stein re-wrote the book, and Strouse approached Lyric Stage in Irving about presenting the world premiere of the revamped musical.
It follows the tale of five Jewish families who come to New York around the turn of the last century. They work in the garment district during the time of the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. (This year marks the 100th anniversary of that tragedy, which killed 146 people.)
