The Lynn Vance Show 153: SLT’s production of ‘BOB: A Life in Five Acts’ debuts virtually this weekend


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – If you’re looking for something uplifting, fun and safe this weekend look no further.

Shreveport’s Little Theatre has the answer – the premiere of a virtual production designed to tickle funny bones and warm hearts. The play, “Bob: A Life in Five Acts,” is a wacky road-tripping comedy directed by John Daniel.

Starring in this delightful romp are Josh Hires, Liesl Cruz, Barbara Leonard-Holmes, Jason Woods and Camren Hohn.

Written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, “Bob: A Life in Five Acts” is an oddball comedy that tells the life story of Bob as he goes from a baby abandoned in the bathroom of a White Castle restaurant to a mythic folk legend known by everyone in America.

Along the way, Bob travels the country from state-to-state and meets hundreds of other people as he strives to become a “Great Man.” Each person he meets -from lion tamers and angry wolves to lusty waitresses and even a one-armed roulette dealer – has a profound effect on Bob, as he does on them. But Bob, together with each of these eclectic and beautiful people, change the country for good (and oddly) forever.

The actors were masked during rehearsals and practiced social distancing; they only removed their masks for the actual filming. One actor who comes into heavy contact with the public daily chose to wear a face shield but this did not affect his performance.

Although SLT is not able to produce live in-house shows right now, they are striving to still entertain the public and hopes viewers will enjoy this wacky and endearing comedy as much as they enjoyed making it.

The on-demand show will be available to view on Friday, January 22, 2021 12:00 AM – Sunday, January 24, 2021 11:45 PM CST.

Tickets are $15. Ticket holders will be emailed a link to the production. Pre-show ticket sales are online at or by calling SLT’s box office at (318) 424-4439, at, or on SLT’s Facebook page.
