Here's what our audience has to say about RAGTIME:
"The Two Of Us Productions is a gutsy little-big theater company." "Their
RAGTIME embraces history, race, music, and hard personal choices. It evokes feelings of national pride and anger
that you may have thought you had outgrown. These feelings are worth digging up." -- Marion Hunter, The Columbia
"A dazzling production of RAGTIME ... The upbeat Ragtime music (is) played to the nines by the
vibrant 26 piece orchestra under Stephen Sanborn ... The choreography of Constance Lopez carried superb flow ... The
sets were simple and just right ... wonderful lighting that sometimes seemed a trick of Houdini." --
John Paul Keeler, The Register-Star
On Saturday evening I went off to see RAGTIME. It is a wonderful
production and made me want to read the book again .... I highly recommend it.
"What an amazing show! Bravo!"
" Your Daddy's Son ... sung by Jacqueline Salvatore in a caressing vocal sound,
a lullaby for the infant in her arms. Constance Lopez as Mother sang her songs with fine style bringing a superb contrast
in Goodbye My Love and What Kind Of Woman .. James Jollie brought fine acting to the part
of Tateh .... Louise Pillai's declamation as Emma Goldman ... could surely be heard at Catskill Point" --
John Paul Keeler, The Register-Star
whole show was wonderful! Oh my gosh, what talent, it was incredible! I took my parents and we all had such a wonderful time..the
show was impressive with the sets (the projections and the side things the actors climbed on...your Model T was fantastic!!)
What a professional production..oh, it was just wonderful! BRAVO!
historical period is vivid. (Evelyn) Nesbit is nicely played by a saucy Tara K. Young, Louise Pillai is a slim
and rousing Emma Goldman. There are a number of attractive voices in this cast ... especially .. Paul Carter as
Coalhouse Walker and Constance Lopez as Mother" ... "Carter emphasizing (Coalhouse's) warmth, conflict and rage" ... Lopez ... "creates a woman who is intensely feminine and empathetic but well equipped with
a clear head and a solid backbone." -- Marion Hunter, The Columbia Paper
