It was once said of Bonnie and Clyde, the his-and-her gangster team, "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 Oscar-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. San Jose Stage Company presents the regional premiere of this Tony-nominated tale of love, adventure and crime. Learn More
After the show, check out Cafe Stritch. Its two blocks from the theater. A live band usually plays til midnight. They make good strong drinks, and there are usually tables available at that time.

With equal parts humor and intensity, True West dissects the American Dream and the divide it creates between imagination and reality. Sam Shepard’s most popular black comedy is a gritty examination of two warring brothers that has inspired a new generation of playwrights, including the UK’s Martin McDonagh, to take their own darkly comic look at sibling rivalry. Through the power struggle between Austin and Lee, True West brings the question of cultural and individual identity into sharp focus.
