More Information

The musical Rags had its debut at George Mason University in Fall 2019, when a group of young actors, faculty members, and alumni worked directly with the original librettist, Tommy Thompson, and reimagined this “old” musical anew. Join various members of the creative team and cast in this Facebook Livestream conversation as they discuss the behind-the-scenes process and mounting of this powerful musical.

Kevin Murray, Interim Director of Mason's School of Theater, will introduce the work, revealing never-before-seen footage of the production, followed by a lively  discussion with Rick Davis (Director), Tommy Thompson (Librettist), Deb Sivigny (Set Designer), Ahmad Maaty (Choreographer), and actors Aiden Brennan, Jessica Barraclough, and Tony Lemus.
