Composed by the creators of Wicked, Godspell, Annie, Bye Bye Birdie and other American classics, Rags is a heart-warming and powerful tale showcasing the grit and optimism of immigrants arriving in Ellis Island at the turn of the 20th century.

Mason’s School of Theater has a rare opportunity to work with the award-winning creative team on this new adaptation of a hidden musical gem. Be among the first to hear Rags’ newly revised libretto in this D.C.-area premiere, and take in the ravishing score and sweeping saga of American’s immigrant past blending with new American values.
