Limelight Theatre: ‘Bus Stop’
Friday, June 11, 2021, through Sunday, June 20, 2021 at Limelight Theatre, Inc.
Limelight Theatre will present the play “Bus Stop” for two weeks in June, starting Friday, June 11, and ending on Sunday, June 20, 2021.
Written by William Inge in 1955, “Bus Stop” is a drama, with romantic and comedic elements.
In the middle of a snowstorm, a bus is stranded outside of Kansas City. Its passengers — including a stubborn, lovesick cowboy (Bo) and the nightclub singer (Cheri) he hopes to marry — seek shelter and warmth in a roadside diner. The motley crew spends one night together, and a story of bluster, heartache, laughter and love ensues.
A film adaptation of the classic American story reached theaters in 1956 and starred Marilyn Monroe as Cheri and Don Murray as Bo.
