NewsShow Announcement September 18, 2015 Encore Staff

Bonnie & Clyde is a musical combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music, conjuring up America’s most notorious lovers and bank robbers.

At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. The TONY-nominated Bonnie & Clyde is the story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country.

When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and the people they care about in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws near.

Dan Cooney, the Encore’s co-founder, is one of the original cast members of the Broadway production of this show. Cooney was a part of the cast from the workshop process to the shows closing on Broadway.

The production is under the direction of Ron Baumanis with musical direction by Tyler Driskill. Alexander Kunitz is stage manager with costume design by Sharon Urick, set and lighting design by Dan Walker, prop design by Anne Donevan.

The Encore Musical Theatre Company will open Bonnie & Clyde on October 2, 2015. The production will play through Sunday, October 25, with a preview performance on Thursday, October 1. The show will be the first show of the Encore’s eighth season.
