Bonnie & Clyde Shows Outlaws Can Be Endearing

Posted on Nov 9, 2011

Love blooms in the dust bowl of Texas during the depression in this likeable new musical about real life outlaws, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.  The author’s note in the program describes how they wanted to be true to the love story, a tragic romance and portray the characters as real people. 

Set in the depression of the 1930’s, when the banks were handing out foreclosure notices and directions to the
nearest soup kitchens, these two young people decided to take a different direction.  The cast is charming.  The set and lighting design are expertly handled.  The use of classic set construction and video are thoughtfully combined to transport you back in time.  The rockabilly-blues music and lyrics are a nice change from the overly amplified musicals lately to open.  Opinions in the theater ranged from this will be a big hit to a nice afternoon on Broadway.

Good for adults and children over 18.
