Produced by Paula Wagner, the staged reading will be directed by Scott Ellis, according to the New York Post.
In Bus Stop, according to previous production notes, "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."
Bus Stop premiered on Broadway in 1955. The cast included Kim Stanley, Albert Salmi and Elaine Stritch. The film version starred Marilyn Monroe as Cherie. The last Broadway revival, in 1996, co-starred Billy Crudup and Mary-Louise Parker.
