RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

A three-character play about Wally, a man who buys a cafe on the wrong side of the road that goes to Las Vegas. Wally, his wife, and their one waitress watch the years go by and see all of Wally's hopes and dreams bite the dust. Nevertheless, there is a happy ending to this gag-filled comedy that spans four decades.

Fun show for a strong cast of three.  Good laughs, some sentiment--all in all, a great small cast show.
