With a ravishing score by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell) and Charlies Strouse (Annie, Bye Bye Birdie), Rags was taken on a complete “revisal” of the original 1986 Broadway version with a new book by Tom Thompson.
Directed by Rob Ruggiero, Rags follows the story of Rebecca (Samantha Massell), a new Jewish immigrant to New York in 1910. David originated to role of German immigrant and wealthy factory owner, Max Bronfman in this new lavish production at Goodspeed Opera House in late 2017.
“Ruggiero brought David Harris, an alum of TheaterWorks’ Next to Normal, to Rags as a character not in the original. He’s terrific.” – The Westfield News (full review)
“David Harris is the man you love to hate as Max, and I also loved his performance in TheaterWorks Hartford’s Next to Normal.” – Pillow Talkings (full review)
“Her fashion sense comes to the attention of factory owner Bronfman (David Harris) who uses his charms and lovely tenor voice to beguilingly exploit the seamstress.” – Critics on the Aisle (full review)
