Résumé

On Highway 57, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, stands a gas station. Across the blacktop is a roadside eatery called the Double Cupp Diner. The four guys at the station, Jim, Jackson, Eddie and L.M., have been known to do some auto repairs, but only when aided by quantities of time and beer. The Cupp sisters, Prudie and Rhetta, celebrate their home cooking with the same zeal they bring to being neighbourly with the boys. This is their musical tribute to life by the roadside!

The show ran on Broadway for 15 months, winning many awards and a Tony Nomination. The West End production took over from the financially disastrous “Y” at the Piccadilly, but was still presented as an “after-dinner” attraction with the stalls used for pre-show dining. It was performed in a more conventional setting when it transferred to the Albery. Cast changes during its run included Joe Brown, Clodagh Rodgers, Peter Duncan, Lyndsey de Paul, Jeremy Clyde and Chad Stuart.
