‘Bonnie and Clyde’ musical takes aim at Broadway

- Associated Press - Thursday, June 23, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - A musical about the bank robbing lovers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow is targeting Broadway.

Producers said Thursday that "Bonnie and Clyde" starring Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan will begin previews on Nov. 4 and open on Dec. 1 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

It has a book by Ivan Menchell, who wrote "The Cemetery Club," music by Frank Wildhorn, of "Jekyll & Hyde" fame, and lyrics by Don Black, who did the same for "Sunset Boulevard."

Versions of the production have previously been mounted at the La Jolla Playhouse in California and the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Fla.

Osnes is currently starring as Hope Harcourt in "Anything Goes" and was in the recent revival of "South Pacific." Jordan was in "West Side Story" and "Rock of Ages."
