In the first scene of this light-hearted rock musical from Hobo Junction, a surly waitress ponders whether she's an extra in someone else's story or other people are extras in hers. As it turns out, neither is the case--everybody in Josh Zagoren's book comes off as an extra. A couple of potential lead characters emerge but fizzle as the plot--about servers struggling to keep up with an onslaught of customers--barrels down its one-gag track and the cast divvy up solos without regard to vocal talent. Still, there are a few moments of charm. Boasting an impressive set of pipes and wry comedic timing, Carla Kessler delights as the authoritarian shift manager. --Keith Griffith
