This 1982 Tony Award-nominated musical revue is as bracing as a Burma Shave ad and friendly as a bluetick hound. A variety of show tunes are sung by an ensemble of gas jockeys and waitresses headed by Jim Wann, John Foley, John Schimmel, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk and Cass Morgan. Especially ingratiating is Hardwick's comic solo, The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine.
