What is the difference in the libretto between the full version of Ragtime and the 9 piece orchestra of Ragtime? Were their cuts in the script?
Is there only Performance Tracks available for the full version and not available for the revised 9 piece version?

Hi! Ragtime (9-Piece Orchestration)​ 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 9 players. The characters, songs, and dialogue are the same as the original version.

Performance Accompaniment Recording is not available for the 9-piece version.
