Review • Bus Stop at the Adobe Rose

There is a great review by Mark Dunn of Bus Stop, written by William Inge, at Adobe Rose. In part, Mr. Dunn writes:

Adobe Rose Theatre’s rendering of this sweet Valentine to young, passion-driven love (as well as serving as a veritable treatise on all the other kinds of love that the human animal is capable of embracing) is enhanced immeasurably by strong performances from each member of this cohesive ensemble, which includes both stage veterans and one incredibly talented newcomer to the stage. Jessica Haring, whose portrayal of the paradoxical Cherie—an innocent with a “past”—accomplished the near impossible for me on opening night: she removed all vestiges of Marilyn Monroe (who had played Cherie in the film adaptation) and gave me a brand new, even more empathetic Cherie for whom to cheer.
