THE TIN PAN ALLEY RAG is a musical play which focuses on a fictional but plausible meeting between Irving Berlin and Scott Joplin in the early 20th Century in New York City's Tin Pan Alley. The aging Joplin happens into young Berlin's office in search of a publisher for his opera, TREEMONISHA. The ensuing musical highlights influential and emotional moments from each of their lives, contrasting the ironic similarities and differences between the men. While Joplin received a conservatory education as the prodigy of a father born into slavery, it was Berlin, the Russian immigrant who couldn't read music, who had his first international hit song at the age of 23. What becomes clear is that both Berlin and Joplin possessed musical gifts beyond measure and shared a passionate humanity, both of which are beautifully showcased and illuminated in THE TIN PAN ALLEY RAG.
