KC Rep Offers Another Great Work, So Close to Home

A freak snowstorm blankets the highway to Topeka. Stranded souls stop to share coffee and bear the pain of empty love and loneliness.

No, it’s not this weekend’s edition of “Real Housewives of Johnson County.” KC Rep’s revival of the William Inge play BUS STOP (now through April 4 at the Spencer Theater on the UMKC campus) goes that show and the rest of the reality TV genre one better– it’s real AND a timeless work of art. Forget “Road Rules” and “Real World”–Inge’s characters show us what being a survivor is really all about.

BUS STOP takes place on a snowy night in March– just like the one that blanketed Kansas City for the show’s opening.

    Seriously? You have the character’s names and/or actor’s names wrong in this section. Will is the sheriff. Bo is the young man vying for Cherie’s affections. (The actor playing Bo plays him like he’s doing a SNL skit, by the way.)

    Oops. Sorry about that. I made the correction. Thanks for pointing it out. I disagree with your assessment of Schultz’s performance– I liked it alot. Each to his own.
