"Wearing contemporary attire, several principal cast members walk into an attic that is crammed with old-fashioned lamps, chairs, trunks, a rocking horse, a Victrola, and a piano. Above the stage hang three large, wooden windows, canted at an angle, in what is likely a nod by set designer Brian Prather to the three groups of characters whose lives will eventually intertwine." -The Boston Globe


"I had fears that staging Ragtime in an attic would lessen its scope, but...the net effect of Brian Prather's scenic design, is to sharpen the focus." - WBUR The ARTery


"My guesses why Ragtime is not often produced are two: a very large cast, and sets that could easily challenge the best of designers. Director Joe Calarco and scenic designer Brian Prather have demonstrated that what might seem difficult, is an enormous success in their hands." - In the Spotlight


"Calarco has set Ragtime within a warehouse attic - brilliantly designed by Brian Prather and lit by Chris Lee." - Berkshire Eagle
