Synopsis: Bonnie & Clyde tells the story of the Depression-era American outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Their love affair soon spirals out of control, as Bonnie & Clyde commit a series of bank robberies. As their notoriety — and body count — rises, the ill-fated lovers find themselves racing to the top of the Public Enemies list. Sex, flesh, violence and American greed — or "want," if you will — are major elements in the pop show.
