MacTheatre is proud to announce that we are one of only a handful of theatre companies across the nation to be granted special permission to produce this thrilling new show before it goes on national tour! Direct from Broadway BONNIE AND CLYDE is a thrilling, edgy, biographical musical account of Texas’ most infamous couple.
At the height of the Great Depression two small-town nobodies in West Texas become America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the excited attention of an entire country. Now, the most notorious couple of the twentieth century takes on a whole new adventure: the stage.
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 their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run from every southern state’s police force, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.
BONNIE AND CLYDE is an exciting, cutting-edge musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel, bluegrass and rockabilly music. Our production will feature a large ensemble cast, spectacular scenic design, rocking live orchestra, and a recreation of the infamous Bonnie & Clyde 1934 Ford V8 death car! Please be advised that this production, based on true events, does depict some instances of violence.
