and February 26-March 1, 2020
In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a small roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and the weary travelers on board must take refuge in the diner until morning. Cherie, a nightclub singer, has the most to worry about. She’s being physically pursued by “a young cowboy with all the romantic finesse of a rodeo bull.” The belligerent cowhand is right behind her, ready to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicking, all the way to Montana, while other bus riders and diner staff have love interests of their own. This is set in the pre-women’s lib 1960s, and went from stage to screen starring Marilyn Monroe.
