Rags Tickets

London Musical
From the songwriters of Wicked and Annie, Rags The Musical comes to London's Park Theatre!
Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre in association with Knockhardy Productions and Park Theatre present RAGS The Musical Direct from a critically-acclaimed run at the Hope Mill Theatre, RAGS The Musical tells the heartwarming and powerful tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in America. 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. It is a story of both hope and disappointment, of power and greed, of strength and love, combined with memorable music. 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. “…an unforgettable, unique and vibrant treat” Jewish Telegraph Book by Joseph Stein Music by Charles Strouse Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz Revised Book by David Thompson Directed by Bronagh Lagan

    Fantastic show , love the rewritten script , it flowed, it was pationate, it felt real, and it was very moving and that was due to the great acting and singing. I was in this show 20 years ago and played Rosa( who is not in the rewritten version) when I sung Bread and Freedom with the sweatshop girls. Sal's rendition yesterday made it even more real singing from the heart every word and note meaningful. Well done to all and want to see it again ??

    We thought it was very good.....innovative, great music and performing, humour as well as sadness. We would recommend it to others.

    Excellent cast. The story could relate to what is happening today

  • Review Avatar Jan 21, 2020

    It was a son of 'Fiddler on the Roof' but there was no memorable song. Somewhat of a cliché, with some narrative copied directly from F on the R. Average and I wouldn't recommend it

  • Review Avatar Jan 22, 2020

    The cast were very good and worked very hard: they should be commended. The songs were, sadly, unmemorable and the show walked a well worn path.

    Acting was superb. No memorable songs

    Lovely sequel to Fiddler on the roof

    I go to the Park Theatre quite often - this show blew me away! Everything about it has West End Transfer written all over it. The cast certainly acted as though they were on the big stage - enthusiastic, emotional with fabulous singing from the leads. Never seen as big a cast at the PT, they totally dominated the space and transported the audience to New York. Friends who’d travelled across London to see it were equally enthusiastic. Well done everybody involved.

    Brilliant production. Really enjoyed it.

  • Review Avatar Jan 24, 2020

    Really much better than I expected. The momentum built up so well as I wasn't sure how much I was enjoying it at the beginning but it just got better and better. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

  • Review Avatar Jan 24, 2020

    A thoroughly enjoyable visit to the theatre to see Rags. Slick, professional, humorous, and also very current just a few things to say about it. A number of stand put performances - will definitely be keeping an eye out for future productions.

    It was a show I had been wanting to see for a long time since it first failed on Broadway, and have had the CD (that we were lucky to get!) for many years. This is obviously a "revisal", and although I cannot compare it to the original "version" I loved it! Beautifully sung and performed, my only complaint would be that the people on the "sides" were not really considered in a theatre that is three quarters "in the round", but that's a directorial thing, and certainly no fault of the wonderful cast. I look forward to seeing more rare musicals here, having previously seen "Do I Hear A Waltz?" and "Rothschild & Sons", both of which I enjoyed immensely.
