This electrifying story of love, adventure, and the crimes that captured the attention of the country is fearless in its betrayal of the reckless young lovers. With a score of infectious songs by Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Civil War, The Scarlet Pimpernel and Wonderland) and Don Black (Tell Me on a Sunday, Aspects of Love, and Sunset Boulevard), BONNIE & CLYDE memorializes Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the two small-town nobodies in West Texas who became two of America's most renowned folk heroes...and the Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers' thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo's fame grows bigger, their well-known inevitable end plays out for all to see.
