Feb 23 Theatre 98 "Bus Stop"
A delightful mid-50’s diner becomes an oasis as Bo, Virgil, Cherie, Dr. Ly-man, and of course, the bus driver, Carl, escape a Kansas blizzard. Bo, a full-of-himself cowboy, naively assumes he can take Cherie for his wife. Cherie, a sparkly clad chanteuse, brashly insists that she has been kidnapped. While the frigid snowstorm roars outside, inside the bus stop there is the heat of action. The characters are consumed with rough romance and discovery. A new understanding of love, like the sunrise, clears the road for a bright new day. Click here to edit...
