Broadway's BONNIE & CLYDE will play at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, beginning previews on Friday, November 4th and opening on Thursday, December 1st. New artwork for the Broadway production has been released and BroadwayWorld brings you a first look below!
BONNIE & CLYDE has direction by Jeff Calhoun, music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black, book by Ivan Menchell and music supervision/orchestrations/arrangements by John McDaniel.
The show will star Laura Osnes (2011 Drama Desk nominee, Anything Goes) as Bonnie Parker and Jeremy Jordan (West Side Story) as Clyde Barrow.
"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.
