Description:

A meeting between Irving Berlin and Scott Joplin generates surprisingly entertaining and dramatic musical fireworks. When the aging Scott Joplin happens into young Irving Berlin’s office in search of a publisher, a musical discourse unfolds highlighting influential and emotional moments from each of their lives. This bracingly original piece contrasts the ironic similarities and differences between the men to sustaining surge of their musical compositions.
