About the Play
Welcome to the Double Cupp Diner on Highway 57, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina. It’s a great place to rest a spell, and enjoy a slice of pie and a piping hot cuppa joe or a bottle of beer. The fellas from the gas station next door will be stoppin’ in for a visit with the lovely Cupp sisters, to play their high energy blend of country-western, bluegrass, and rock & roll packed with entertaining toe-tappers about life, love, and good times along the American roadside.
Says director Farley about the show, “I truly love this music, its blend and its high octane energy, all navigated by outstanding Atlanta professional artists who take the stage for this production. It’s the perfect follow up to last season’s smash hit Almost Heaven, John Denver’s America.”
