Creative Director of the Bristle Shores Playhouse Ted Lohman hires an eclectic ensemble of non-union actors to perform pop musical sensation Mamma Mia and classic Greek drama Medea in what he hopes will be a groundbreaking summer stock season. However, when the overworked (and clearly underpaid) Technical Director finds a “Cease and Desist” order from a major musical licensing company, the dramatic band of misfits has to decide whether to pack up their character shoes and catch a bus back to their catering gigs or come together to create a little theatre magic. Will they be able to completely recreate a major pop musical in time for Opening Night or will it be a true Greek tragedy? That’s Show Business.
And this is B.S.

“I’ve always said and believed that food creates culture and culture creates food. Many people think that all I do is eat free food and post it for the ‘gram, but In this series I’m going to show you what I see, what I experience, and share the untold stories of the people that shape our culture through food.”
