The play about a group of travelers stranded during a Kansas snowstorm will run through Oct. 17 at the Boston University Theatre. Martin previously served as artistic director of the Huntington.

The cast of Boston actors includes Karen MacDonald (All My Sons, A Civil War Christmas) as Grace, Will LeBow (The Cherry Orchard, How Shakespeare Won the West) as Carl and Noah Bean (Love’s Labour’s Lost) as Bo.

Bus Stop also features Adam LeFevre (The Devil's Disciple) as Will Masters, Stephen Lee Anderson (Wicked) as Virgil Blessing, Ronete Levenson (Lascivious Something) as Elma, Nicole Rodenburg as Cherie and Henry Stram (Inherit the Wind) as Dr. Gerald Lyman.

According to the Huntington: "In Bus Stop, a snowstorm strands a bus outside of Kansas City, and its passengers – including a stubborn, lovestruck cowboy and the nightclub singer he hopes to marry – seek shelter and warmth at a roadside diner. The motley crew spends one night together, filled with bluster, heartache, and laughter, while searching for love."

Designing Bus Stop are scenic designer James Noone, costume designer Miranda Hoffman, lighting designer Philip Rosenberg and sound designer Alex Neumann.

Tickets are available by calling (617) 266-0800 or by visiting Huntington Theatre. The Huntington Theatre Company performs on the Boston University main stage, located at 264 Huntington Avenue in Boston, MA.
