Movie Summary:
The film is a musical comedy with mafia undertones starring: Joe Piscopo, Paul Sorvino, Erika Christensen, Steven Chase, Erich Bergen, and includes a cameo by Eddie Griffin. “How Sweet It Is” invites ticket holders into the path of Jack Cosmo (Joe Piscopo), an alcoholic director that needs to produce a successful musical in order to pay off his debt to mob boss Big Mike (Paul Sorvino), but problems arise when the wise guys want to cast the people that owe them money. However, Jack has one last chance to revitalize his career, and it all hinges on his new musical production called “How Sweet It Is,” which must have a strong opening night. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, except that Big Mike (mob boss) fancies himself a casting director and insists that the cast will consist of deadbeats and criminals that owe him money. Jack doesn’t have a choice but to go along with the plan… Original score by Matt Dahan.

Later in the week Milt Pappas (Legendary All Star Chicago Cubs Pitcher) joined Kevin “The Butcher” Hughes and Scott L. Schwartz at Rasberry’s Pancake House for “Tip A Star” and Aurelio’s Pizza.

Alicia’s House is totally supported by donations from individuals, businesses, and their various fundraisers.
