Playwright William Inge was on a legendary hot streak when he wrote Bus Stop
, the lively drama now at the Sharonville Fine Arts Center. Only two years before, Inge had won the Pulitzer Prize for Picnic
which ran for a year on Broadway before being adapted into an Oscar-winning film. With the stakes higher than ever, he delivered nothing less than a modern-day masterpiece. When a snowstorm forces a bus off the road, strangers must spend a long night holed-up in a diner. Thus come together rodeo champ Bo, chanteuse Cherie, the forlorn Dr. Lyman, starry-eyed Elma and others for an evening that will change all their lives forever. Later adapted into a classic film starring Marilyn Monroe (and then a subsequent '60s TV series), Bus Stop
continues to touch audiences with its mix of comedy, romance and pathos.
