Ragtime Granted Stay of Execution

By

Shuttering musical Ragtime will stay open a week past its previously announced closing date of January 3, owing to a sudden spike in sales. Producer Kevin McCollum explains: "It's demand, it's that people were waiting to see Ragtime, and they know it’s still here, so we’re getting a great amount of interest in tickets." But will any ticket-holders show up now that they know they'll have seven more days to catch it? [ArtsBeat/NYT]
