The City Theater presents Bus Stop
Bus Stop longs for a simpler, more innocent past. Filled with sentimental characters and a pleasant, slice-of-life storyline, it still manages to charm modern audiences, both young and old.
In a howling storm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a roadside diner, where eight snowbound strangers get a full serving of love, longing, and loneliness. Cherie’s a nightclub singer with big dreams and no intentions of settling down. Bo’s a good ol’ cowboy with the romantic manners of a headstrong bull, who will not let Cherie get away. Along with this foolish romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver develop a friendship of their own, a middle-aged scholar comes to terms with himself, and a young girl gets her first taste of romance.
As the storm wears on, they all spend the night discovering truths and uncovering lies. Of course, this all comes with a warm side of romance and laughter, and the ageless pursuit of honesty, personal desire, and companionship, for all of the weary travelers, is the soup du jour.
