Bonnie & Clyde replaces The Big Time at La Jolla Playhouse

Bonnie & Clyde

La Jolla Playhouse
announced a change in their Fall schedule today. The world-premiere musical Bonnie & Clyde will replace the previously scheduled musical, The Big Time. Bonnie & Clyde features music by Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel), lyrics by Tony Award-winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard, Song and Dance), book by Ivan Menchell (The Cemetery Club, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), and direction by Jeff Calhoun (Deaf West's Big River and Pippin, Grease!).


Bonnie & Clyde will run November 10 - December 20, 2009. The musical is based on the lives of Depression-era outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow and this seductive new version examines how a troubled Texas teen and a love-sick waitress became America's most infamous couple, with a thrilling new score that combines rockabilly, blues and gospel music.

As previously announced, La Jolla Playhouse's acclaimed 2008 production of Memphis will transfer to Broadway in October, 2009. Artistic Director Christopher Ashley, who directed La Jolla’s production last year, will direct the New York version as well. Ashley was originally slated to direct The Big Time, thus the change in shows. http://tinyurl.com/q45m5u
