Gossip! – Hot Dogs: The Competitive Eating Musical

#hotdogsthecompetitiveeatingmusicalOne of the highlights of the New York City summer is attending Nathan’s Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island and watching the weirdly fascinating sport that is competitive eating. Competitive eaters have gotten a lot of attention recently, starring in TV shows, documentaries, and now, at last, in an off-Broadway musical. Hot Dogs: The Competitive Eating Musical will hit Manhattan in early fall. The star of the show is Johnny Cashew, inspired by the real life eating champion, Joey Chestnut. Sadly, there will be no actual eating during the show. Apparently, it’s hard to belt out showtunes with a hot dog shoved down your trap.
