White bread America takes a gentle beating in Bess Wohl’s thoroughly charming AMERICAN HERO at Second Stage Uptown

Abandoned by corporate office, a rogue chain sandwich shop as parable of new world order. Adorable, delightfully funny, but also some sharp edges. Wonderful ensemble. Camp, speed mayo, teased hair, 80’s classics whistled and played on flute, and hot, steamy –er– sandwiches on floor. These guys could be making Blizzards.
