Rick Finkelstein and Steven Chase are proud to announce the music and score in this summer’s most talked about musical/comedy “How Sweet It Is”, have qualified for 3 Academy Awards and 4 Grammy Awards in multiple categories. This hilarious musical comedy focuses on the life of a down-on-his-luck, alcoholic theater owner named Jack Cosmo (Joe Piscopo). He is in danger of losing the one thing he cares about most because he is in debt to the mob. However, Jack has one last chance to save his legendary musical theater...and his life, and it all hinges on his new musical production called “How Sweet It Is,” which must have a strong opening night. This might not be a problem, except that the mob boss (Paul Sorvino) fancies himself a casting director and insists that Jack casts the people that owe him money to play the parts. Jack doesn’t have a choice but to go along with the plan. “How Sweet It Is” has an extraordinary original score by Matt Dahan.
