On Tuesday, October 10th, Broadway Backstory podcast tells the story of how BONNIE & CLYDE, the 2011 musical by Frank Wildhorn, Don Black, and Ivan Menchell made it to Broadway.

Interviewees include Frank Wildhorn, Don Black, Ivan Menchell, director Jeff Calhoun, actors Jeremy Jordan and Laura Osnes, La Jolla Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley, and set/costume designer Tobin Ost.
