Bonnie & Clyde

  • Broadway audiences eagerly await the arrival of Bonnie and Clyde.

The Asolo Repertory Theatre‘s production of a new musical adaptation of the Arthur Penn classic Bonnie & Clyde, which already played to sold-out audiences during its premiere run at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse last year and just opened in Sarasota, will be making the road trip to Broadway next year (knocking off banks as it goes, one presumes). The Herald-Tribune (of Sarasota, FL) reports that Jerry Frankel and Jeffrey Richards, producers of current Broadway hit Merchant of Venice, semi-hit Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, and about-to-close flop A Life in the Theatre, will bring the beautiful bank-robbing Depression-era duo to an as yet unbooked house on the Great White Way. Star-casting this one should be fun. (CultureMonster)
