The Tin Pan Alley Rag (Musical)
Randy Aaron,Rosena M Hill, James Judy, Erick Pinnick -
Laura Pels Theatre
This charming, vivid musical tells how two American composers changed the idiom of western popular music. The curious parallel personal tragedies of Scott Joplin and Irving Berlin exist in contrast to their generally upbeat lively sounds.
In the early 1900s, Joplin and Berlin, brilliant musicians, created sounds and beats that established a new American music that would echo across this landscape and the world. Both were consummate outsiders: one the son of a slave, the other a Russian immigrant who had escaped the anti-Jewish pogroms with his parents. Mark Saltzman’s play – with the stunning Joplin and Berlin sounds – is a lively, appealing, often fascinating look back at what motivated them. The motivations and the men were quite different.
