A movie of the musical would definitely be nice. I just watched the non-musical movie for the first tme yesterday, and it was my least fav. or the three "versions" of Ragtime (book/movie/musical). It seemed like the musical really captures the spirit of the book much more.

I would love it if they did a movie of the musical with the same cast.
There is a non-musical film based on the book...Fran Drescher plays Tateh's wife lol =)

This is at the top of my list of musicals that need to be made into movies.
Even a recording of the Broadway cast would have been great.

While it is by no means a complete recorded version of the play, there IS a PBS show on the Making of Ragtime the Musical with many scenes. The problem is that I don't think it was ever released for public sale after it showed on the air, and I have never been able to get my hands on a copy. But it does memorialize the performances in part of the original cast.
