The plot revolves around three show-biz has-beens: lounge singer Hugh Butternut (who has spent the past two decades performing in a coffee bar; the titular "Triple Espresso"), mime and singer Bobby Bean, and taciturn magician Buzz Maxwell; played in the original Minneapolis production by the show's writers, musician Michael Pearce Donley, comedian Bob Stromberg, and magician Bill Arnold. Hugh Butternut is portrayed as an excited, rambunctious entertainer; Bobby Bean is a not-too-sharp go-getter; and Buzz Maxwell is the group's straight man and the brains behind the "unintentional" comedy team within the show. The three gather in the coffeehouse on the 25th anniversary of their first - and last - group foray into the entertainment world (a disastrous outing on the Mike Douglas Show) to retell and memorialize their mediocre show-business careers. The plot is designed to make room for a series of comedic sketches which showcase the talents of the show's three-man cast (which rotates based on location and availability of actors), which involve the audience heavily and only tangentially have anything to do with the plot. The show's "home base" is the small Music Box Theatre on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis. This page is a candidate to be moved to Wiktionary. ...
