Upstage Theatre Blackbox Production
Bonnie & Clyde tells the story of real-life fugitives, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. In the midst of the country-wide depression the couple find notoriety and love in this thrilling, fast-paced musical. Their craving for fame and thrills leads them into a life of crime and a life on the run. Despite the pleas of their families, the couple embark on a series of robberies at gunpoint, continuously evading the police and becoming the celebrities they desperately wanted to be. As their fame and ambition grows, their inevitable fate draws closer. Sexy, exciting, and daring, Bonnie & Clyde combines gospel, rockabilly, and blues music to produce an innovative score that complements the action-filled plot.
