Bonnie & Clyde

A New Musical

book by Ivan Menchell, music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black, music supervision by John McDaniel, direction and musical staging by Jeff Calhoun

 

    

 

Everybody had a dream. They had a plan. 

West Dallas, Texas. 1930. Clyde Barrow was a brazen 22-year-old who wanted a better life than his hard-working parents, barely able to survive the Depression. 19-year-old Bonnie Parker was a pretty, straight-A student with a flair for poetry, dreams of Broadway and desperate to escape her small town life. Together, it was love at first sight and one wild ride that took them from poverty to infamy on a two-year crime spree that tantalized the dark side of America’s imagination.

Now, Bonnie and Clyde’s adventures are brought to the stage in a stunning new musical from the creative team of writer Ivan Menchell (The Cemetery Club, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), composer Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel) and Tony-Award winning lyricist Don Black (Sunset Boulevard, Song and Dance). Cinematic  and seductive, Bonnie & Clyde examines the passionate love story at the center of this legendary story, with a thrilling new score combining rockabilly, blues and gospel music.

Bonnie & Clyde premiered in 2009 at La Jolla Playhouse in California where it captivated audiences and national attention. The musical won the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle’s Award for Outstanding New Musical and director Jeff Calhoun was honored for Best Direction of a Musical. Following it's Asolo Rep run, Bonnie & Clyde is planned for a 2011 Broadway production.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an extraordinarily talented group of creative artists,” said Asolo Rep Artistic Director, Michael Donald Edwards.  “With the economic nightmare that was the Great Depression suddenly seeming less remote, Bonnie & Clyde could not be timelier. Their dreams were totally American: freedom, money and fame. It was their plan that got them into trouble. Their story struck a chord with so many who felt betrayed by the system and that chord will resonate again in this most American of theatre forms: the musical.”
