"What attracted me to this Bonnie & Clyde is that the authors have developed a love story that is both compelling and sexy, distinct from the film and yet faithful to these personalities who remain such a part of the American landscape" said director Jeff Calhoun. "I can't wait for audiences to see Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan in these iconic roles. They are both extraordinary talents."
Laura Osnes originated the role of Bonnie Parker when BONNIE & CLYDE first began at the La Jolla Playhouse in the fall of 2009, where she earned a San Diego Theater Critics Circle Award for her performance and the show won Best Musical. She then reprised that role opposite Jeremy Jordan in the fall of 2010 when the show ran to critical acclaim at the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida.
Laura Osnes is currently starring as Hope Harcourt in Anything Goes. She recently starred as Nellie Forbush in Lincoln Center's Broadway revival of South Pacific.She made her Broadway debut as Sandy in Grease, having won NBC's reality competition "Grease: You're the One That I Want." Regional: Broadway: Three Generations (Kim McAfee), Pride and Prejudice (Elizabeth Bennet). TV: PBS' "Sondheim! The Birthday Concert" (released on DVD), the HBO pilot "The Miraculous Year."
Jeremy Jordan performed on Broadway in West Side Story (Tony) and Rock of Ages. His regional theatre credits include Big River (Goodspeed) and The Little Dog Laughed (Hartford Theatreworks) for which he received a Critics' Circle Nomination.
