It was once said of the infamous his-and-her gangster team of Bonnie and Clyde, "They're young. They're in love. They kill people." And now, thanks to this rousing and breathlessly exciting new musical, you can add a fourth description: They sing. Composed by Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde) with lyrics by Academy Award winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard), Bonnie & Clyde weaves rockabilly, blues and gospel music into the story of how two small-time nobodies in West Texas became America's most notorious folk heroes. Runaway Stage Productions presents the regional premiere of this Tony-nominated tale of love, adventure and crime. Learn More

I thought this production was really great and especially amazing for the price. I also saw this show in SF and paid about 100 per ticket, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this production just as much or more. I will definitely attend more performances at this theatre!
The show revolves around one musical theatre fan’s obsession with a fictional show from the 1920s — The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to the recording, the characters come to life in his apartment. This is the story of a Broadway actress, Janet Van De Graaf, who wants to marry the debonair Robert Martin and give up her stage career. Janet’s producer, Mr. Feldzie, must stop the wedding because if she quits show business, he’ll lose his job! Further, gangsters threaten Mr. Feldzie since if Janet quits, they lose their investment.
