Again this is one of my favorite small theaters. I love this space and I always enjoy their shows. Bus stop was good and enjoyable. More serious than I had anticipated. The cast was talented. Some spots seemed a bit slow yet that is how it was written or directed. Also, at times, I felt like a few of the actors were reading their lines versus really acting them. They did not do it throughout the play, just in certain sections every now and then. Excellent set and costumes as always. A nice evening out at truly one of the best theaters in the bay.

Good solid work by the actors, an excellent ensemble admirably (albeit a bit taciturn) pulling off William inge's prolific and bizarre comedic drama. If Marilyn Monroe had not made the film I doubt this play would continue to be mounted today....continued
A play by William Inge. Directed by Michael Ryken.
Long before The Breakfast Club, there was Bus Stop. It’s winter on the Great Plains, and a snowstorm near Kansas City has stranded a group of bus passengers at a local diner. During their weather-enforced overnight layover, the diverse group of strangers develop short-lived but revealing relationships as they learn about each other—and about themselves.
