VIDEO: Matt Mucha and Taylor Okey Eat Like Sharks and Jets on SECOND ACT SNACKS

Today's snacks are inspired by the cuisine of West Side Story!

Attention Snackers- Mooch and Taylor are back! The theater-foodie-favorite SECOND ACT SNACKS returns! Matt Mucha and Taylor Okey met on the first national tour of BANDSTAND in 2019. When faced with 20-minutes of downtime in Act 2, they knew what they had to do- SNACK. Being on tour allowed them to try different local foods wherever they were performing, and provide ratings and commentary on Instagram Live. As more and more fans started tuning in, Second Act Snacks was born.

The show has since rebranded into the ultimate guide of "what Broadway bites." Each episode revolves around a specific food from a musical such as "pastrami on rye with a sour pickle" (NEWSIES) or "pasta with meatless balls" (RENT). Mooch (Matt Mucha) and Taylor (Taylor Okey) adventure all over Manhattan to find the closest replicas of each and give their famous niche-theater rating of 1-10, as broken down below:

1 - A cell phone going off during the beginning of "She Used To Be Mine"
2 - A "no fly" Elphaba
3 - Star of the show calls out at the matinee
4 - A shaky follow spot
5 - Singing what's on the page; no riffs
6 - Solid regional production of Oklahoma
7 - Opening of "The Lion King"
8 - A William Ivey Long quick change
9 - Audra McDonald's mix
10 - The Tony Award

The creative team includes Matthew Mucha (co-creator/co-host), Taylor Okey (co-creator/co-host), Jaime Bartolett (executive producer), Ryan Patrick Cyr (director/editor), Shaunice Alexander (stylist and continuity director).

Something's coming and it's definitely something good! This week, Mooch and Taylor split up to find a dish that best represents Tony and Maria's backgrounds. It may be a WEST SIDE STORY episode, but the snackerz had to roam all over Manhattan to find the dishes they were looking for. Tune in this week to Second Act Snacks to see what they found!
