StageWorks Theatre Group presents "Bonnie & Clyde"
originally published: 09/29/2022
(POMPTON LAKES, NJ) -- Adrift in the Depression-era Southwest, Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker embark on a life of crime. They mean no harm. They crave adventure -- and each other. Clyde Barrow, recently out of prison, has turned to bank robbery. He meets Bonnie Parker, a bored waitress, and together the two terrorize the southwest in the 1920s.
Based on the true story of a pair of notorious bank robbers, the story personalizes them while still showing the violence that went along with them. People are proud to have been held up by Bonnie and Clyde; to their victims, the duo is doing what nobody else has the guts to do. To the law, they are two are evil bank robbers who deserve to be gunned down where they stand.
Bonnie & Clyde is a musical with a dynamic non-traditional score. It debuted in 2009 with its world premiere in San Diego, CA and transferred to Broadway December 2011. It was nominated for Drama Desk, Drama League and Tony Award consideration: Book by Ivan Menchell; Lyrics by Don Black, Music by Frank Wildhorn and presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
