Everyone’s favorite outlaw couple takes to the stage in this exciting Bonnie and Clyde musical. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were criminals who became well known in the early 1930s for a string of bank robberies. The reputation they built was portrayed in Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde and they became a permanent fixture of American pop culture. With music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Don Black, the songs are a non-traditional combination of gospel, blues and rockabilly music. Director Jeff Calhoun calls the show "a love story that is both compelling and sexy..."
