AR Productions presents an industry reading of the new musical Food Fighters May 26 at noon at The Jerry Orbach Theater at The Theater Center.

Food Fighters, which has a book, music, and lyrics by Aaron Morrill, concerns a young Asian woman with a start-up food business, a Colombian journalist who works in a natural food store, an overbearing mother, a ruthless competitor, a predatory store manager, a narcissistic investment banker, a tough-talking but big-hearted Dominican lesbian, and a self-mythologizing CEO.
