BWW Photo Exclusive: BUSTED! BONNIE & CLYDE Stars Confess Their Guilty Pleasures - The Louis Hobson Edition
Though innocent of the crimes committed by their onstage counterparts, the stars of the new shoot-'em-up Broadway musical, BONNIE AND CLYDE, which opened at the Schoenfeld Theatre on December 1, 2011, are no guiltless parties. For BroadwayWorld's newest photo feature, BUSTED!, we tracked down the stars and got them to confess their biggest guilty pleasure. In this fifth column, The Ted Hinton Edition, we reveal Louis Hobson's secret shortcoming: he can't spell!
Ted Hinton / Louis Hobson
Ted Hinton is the ultimate good guy. Sweet and mild, he's a Deputy Sheriff with a soft spot for the local waitress, Miss Bonnie Parker. Heartbroken as he watches her fall in love with Clyde Barrow, Ted tries his best to prove himself to Bonnie and show her the life she's missing out on. Ted is ultimately faced with the gut-wrenching decision of protecting Bonnie or helping bring down the criminal couple.
