"The latest undertaking of Brian Palumbo’s award-winning Top Hat Productions, “Cafe” will encompass both of Palumbo’s principal loves: musical theater and food. As chef-owner of Selah’s restaurant in downtown Struthers, Palumbo not only directed and stars in the show, but he’ll even be catering the “dinner” part of the evening’s entertainment."
