Former artistic director Nicholas Martin will stage the classic about a group of travelers stranded in the Midwest during a snowstorm.
The cast includes Noah Bean as Bo, a young rancher and lovestruck cowboy; Adam LeFevre as Will Masters, the town's sheriff; Will LeBow as Carl, the bus driver; Stephen Lee Anderson as Virgil Blessing, fellow ranch hand and friend of Bo; Ronete Levenson as Elma, a teenaged waitress at the restaurant; Karen MacDonald as Grace, diner owner and proprietor; Nicole Rodenburg as Cherie, a chanteuse and nightclub starlet; and Henry Stram as former college professor Dr. Gerald Lyman.
In Bus Stop, according to the Huntington, "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."
The creative team includes scenic designer James Noone, costume designer Miranda Hoffman, lighting designer Philip Rosenberg and sound designer Alex Neumann. Production stage manager is Leslie Sears; stage manager is Kevin Robert Fitzpatrick.
