NEW YORK (AP) - The honkey-tonk musical revue “Pump Boys and Dinettes” will make a pit stop on Broadway in the spring of 2013.

It tells the story of two waitresses at the Double Cupp Diner on Highway 57 in North Carolina and the four men who work at a gas station next door. The songs include “Be Good or Be Gone” and “Tips.”

The play was written by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel and Jim Wann, all of whom also starred in the original 1981 off-Broadway production. It hit Broadway in 1982 and ran for 573 performances.

A theater, dates and casting to be announced shortly. It arrives with Broadway’s flirtation with the 1950s in full swing after the debut of a musical based on the film “Diner.”
