Get ready for the return of "Ragtime."

A revival of the musical adapted from E.L. Doctorow's epic novel of early 20th century America will open Nov. 15 on Broadway. Previews begin Oct. 23 at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York.

Producer Kevin McCollum says the $8 million production will feature a cast of nearly 40 actors and an orchestra of more than two dozen musicians. Casting will be announced.

The musical was first seen on Broadway in 1998. The revival was first done last spring at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington.
