SYNOPSIS:

Bonnie and Clyde is a musical with music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black, and a book by Ivan Menchell. The musical centers on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the ill-fated lovers and outlaws whose story has been infamous since they achieved folk hero status in the Great Depression. Wildhorn describes the music as a “non-traditional score, combining rockabilly, blues and gospel”. The musical debuted on Broadway in 2011 starring Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan (and our own Artistic Director, Dan Cooney!) The score includes great tunes like “How ‘Bout a Dance?”, “When I Drive”, “This World Will Remember Us”, “Dyin’ Ain’t So Bad” and many more.
