 Ragtime (Version 2) was presented on tour and in London's West End. It features a revised text and score so that it can be done with minimal visuals and scenic effects, or even in a concert format, using no scenery whatsoever. It is designed to be played with as few as 19 players. (The full, Broadway-sized orchestration of Ragtime (Version 1) is also available for this version for concert presentations, if desired.)
