Member deals & who's in the spotlight this month

Ragtime - Ford's Theatre - Performing Arts in Washington, DC

Save 20% on Friday "Ragtime" performances
Based on E.L. Doctorow’s celebrated novel, the epic Tony-winning musical “Ragtime” depicts three families striving for the American dream at the turn of the 20th century. As the country balances on the cusp of social change, the lives of a wealthy family, a daring Harlem musician and a determined Jewish immigrant intersect—and their fates are inextricably bound and profoundly changed. With an expansive musical score, striking relevancy and a who’s who of 20th-century historical characters, “Ragtime” confronts both the unbridled optimism and the stark reality of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Redemption instructions: Save 20% on Friday matinee and evening performances (April 14-May 19) with code: SEEDC. Limit of four tickets per order. Tickets available only in rear orchestra section.
