If you're going to be in the New York City area this summer and you're planning your itinerary, I would like to suggest that stop by the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre and enjoy a production of Tin Pan Alley Rag. The cast includes my good friend Michael Boatman as Scott Joplin, so yes, this is a biased post.
Michael's credits include television, film and stage work and he is a wonderful actor. Many of you may remember him as Carter from the ABC sit com "Spin City", or as Stanley Babson in the HBO show ARLI$$.
So, if you're in the NYC area and want to hear some good Ragtime music and enjoy a good play - Tin Pan Alley Rag is a good place to start and it runs from June 12-September 6. For more information on the production click here.
