When Marilyn Monroe cooed her lovely lines in the 1956 film version of William Inge’s comedy Bus Stop, she made the playwright about as famous as a playwright can get. Of course, it didn’t hurt that his story about a fifth-rate nightclub singer who gets abducted by a cowboy, only to get snowed in at a bus stop, is charmingly funny. Steve Fenley, director of the newly mounted production at Texas Repertory Theatre, says, “I’m really excited about this show. This is a little bit different kind of comedy. Inge is one of those writers that you rediscover and love. He’s got that romantic comedy template, where the two lovers just can’t quite get it together.” The story follows a group of travelers who end up in a Kansas bus stop during a blinding snow storm. “They pull into a bus stop at 1 a.m.,” says Fenley, and “then the complications start. Inge was very smart. He put all the characters in a very enclosed space and let them go.” 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Through February 20. 14243 Stuebner Airline. For information, call 281-583-7573 or visit www.texreptheatre.org. $35 to $45.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 28. Continues through Feb. 20, 2011
