  Tin Pan Alley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tin Pan Alley was the name given to the collection of New York City-centered music publishers and songwriters who dominated the popular music of the United States in the late 19th century and early 20th century.

Shaw" uses a factual account as its starting point, "Tin Pan Alley Rag" is more of a "what if?" We don't really know if Berlin and Joplin ever met - only that they worked in Manhattan at the same time, the early teens, and more than likely knew one another, even if only in passing.
From that standpoint, "Tin Pan Alley Rag" works, delivering compact biographies of both men along with generous samples of their catalogs in a colorful package well-directed and choreographed by Sha Newman, with a Dwight Odle set and Sharell Martin costumes that are richly ornate yet aptly muted.
As fact-laden as "Tin Pan Alley Rag" is about its two subjects, it's their music that, in the end, conveys the most information about them.
