Bus Stop, now onstage at Altarena Playhouse in Alameda, may be best-known for the 1956 film version, starring Marilyn Monroe. It’s also one of the more famous plays by William Inge (Come Back, Little Sheba; Picnic; Dark at the Top of the Stairs—and the films Splendor in the Grass and All Fall Down), once considered near the top among postwar American playwrights, often mentioned in the same breath with Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. Through Feb. 6. 1409 High St., Alameda. $19–$22. 523-1553. altarena.org.
