Publisher's Summary

Bus Stop was an immediate commercial and critical success on Broadway in 1955.

During a winter storm, a busload of weary travelers are forced to shack up at a roadside diner until morning. Inge was renowned for his in-depth character studies, and Bus Stop is no exception. It offers a warm play about the intersecting lives of eight ordinary people.

    Story
    "'50s values beware."

    Bus Stop. Perhaps better known to most as the 1956 movie adaptation with Marilyn Monroe. To say that it has not aged well is perhaps a bit unfair, but the naivité and '50s mores is distracting.

    I have listened to other L.A Theatre Works plays. They were usually good productions. This however suffers a bit from the "too speedy line delivery syndrome". (I made that up). I.e. the actors getting their lines in too fast, instead of reacting to what is said before. Gets better in the final act though.

    The audience is strangely quiet until the end of act three, where some laughs are heard. I actually thought it was a studio production in the beginning.

    Final word: Not bad, but entirely missable.
