NEW YORK (AP) - A musical based on the legend of the bank-robbing fugitives Bonnie and Clyde hasn’t been able to outrun poor ticket sales on Broadway.
Producers said Friday they’re pulling the plug on the Frank Wildhorn musical “Bonnie & Clyde” by the end of the month. The final performance is slated for Dec. 30.
The show began previews Nov. 4. It will have played only 69 performances when it closes.
It marks the second Broadway blow for Wildhorn this year along with his updated telling of “Alice in Wonderland.” This spring his musical “Wonderland” was panned and closed early.
