What's That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling Summary

What's That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling is an absurd musical parody that charts the career of eternally up-and-coming (and fictitious) musical theater composer Jacob Sterling (Pittu). A rare, up close and personal visit with an artist of questionable gifts who performs from his songbook and shares his human struggle to keep musical theater alive and well in the 21st century.
