About this show

Bus Stop revolves around a group of bus passengers stranded in a 1950s Kansas roadside diner during a snowstorm. Among them are a young cowboy, Bo, who has "abducted" a nightside singer, Cherie, from Kansas City with plans to marry her and take her back to his Montana ranch; Bo's buddy, the soft-spoken cowboy Virgil; and Mr. Lyman, an aging alcoholic professor. Carl, the bus driver, Will, the town sheriff; and two waitresses who run the diner - the poetry-loving high school girl Elma and the world-weary Grace - make up the rest of the group. This nostalgic heartland drama gives audiences a glimpse of the American past as it explores timeless human emotions.
