Bonnie & Clyde: A Folktale, according to press notes, is described as such: "America's most romantic gangsters outwit and outrun a relentless (yet always ladylike) J. Edgar Hoover to the delight of the poor and downtrodden, as their relationship changes from 'strictly business' to reluctant love."
The production will also feature choreography by Josh Rhodes, lighting and sound by Matt Berman, costumes by Matthew Hemesath, set by Adam Koch, and music direction, orchestrations and additional arrangements by Ed Goldschneider. Joshua Pilote is stage manager; Derrick Chua and Ian Samuels produce.
Show times are Sept. 16 at 8 PM, Sept. 19 at 7 PM, Sept. 21 at 5 and 9 PM, Sept. 27 at 4:30 PM and Sept. 28 at 5 PM.
