Written about a bus that travels Lake Street from Minneapolis to St. Paul, the driver swings the door wide open and invites the audience to get on board in what can best be described as a bus ride that won't soon be forgotten. In "21A," Kling demonstrates, as he explains, "I have a small command of the English language so I try to make each word a hero. But in "21A', Kling's homage to the ordinary, the characters become extraordinary and take the audience along for the ride.

Shelves: bestreadsever. Kevin Kling is a wonderful story teller. If you have the chance to see him live you should take it! He has performed this play as a 1 man show about some people riding the bus. I have never seen it performed, but just reading the play and being a bus rider put me right there. Oh the humanity on the bus! Certainly would need to see this performed, and you have to read it as a one-man show to appreciate the story. Interesting for sure.

THEATER: KEVIN KLING IN '21A' OFF BROADWAY
Paul carries an extremely odd assortment of down-and-outers. It's sort of an urban Lake Wobegon, only a lot crazier. Since Mr. Kling not only wrote ''21A,'' now at the Westside Arts Theater, but also plays all the parts, we have to take his word for it. Beginning as a tough bus driver who claims that he has a relative who trains chickens to be champions at tick-tack-toe, Mr. Kling transforms himself rapidly into a woman in pink curlers and white socks who has a better relationship with her cat Little Bob than with her husband Big Bob ; a baggy-suited proselytizer from Boston who offers, for a small contribution, ''a 'triptik' to personal salvation''; a man who keeps insisting that his name is not Dave; a garrulous drunk whose head is encased in a cardboard box from a pack of Schmidt beer; a youth with an exceedingly split personality, and a fellow in military castoffs who waves a gun around.
