BOCA RATON, FL – Continuing their sixth season, the award-winning Slow Burn Theatre Company will present the South Florida premiere of the musical Bonnie & Clyde. The production will run from January 22nd through February 8th at the West Boca Performing Arts Theater on the campus of West Boca Raton Community High School on Glades Road, in Boca Raton, and from February 12th through February 15th at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center in Aventura.
Bonnie & Clyde recounts the storied ‘careers’ of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow – who went from being two small-town nobodies in West Texas to becoming America’s most renowned folk heroes – and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmare. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their dangerous, daring, and deadly escapades captured the excited attention of an entire country. The Tony nominated Bonnie & Clyde, with music composed by the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is an electrifying story of love, adventure, and crime. Bonnie & Clyde’s book is by Ivan Menchell and the show’s lyrics are by Don Black.
“Bonnie & Clyde is the kind of show Slow Burn Theatre Company is in existence to produce,” says Patrick Fitzwater, Slow Burn’s Artistic Director. “It’s a musical that didn’t get a fair shake on Broadway – one that deserves to be seen – and we’re incredibly excited to bring this show to our audiences.”
The cast of Slow Burn Theatre’s Bonnie & Clyde includes: Bruno Faria (Clyde), Jessica Brooke Sanford (Bonnie), Kaela Antolino (Blanche), Christian Vandepas (Buck), Patrick Rodriguez (Ted), David Cohn (Preacher), David Michael Sirois (Sheriff Schmid), Kaitlyn O’Neill (Emma Parker), Meredith Bartmon (Cumie Barrow), and an ensemble featuring Matthew Korinko, Rick Peña, Erin Pittleman, Idalmy Carcache, Conor Walton, Janelle Sango, Bradley Mack, and Dan Carter. Also featured are Juliette Valle and Nicholas Ismailoff as Young Bonnie & Clyde.
The Creative Team for Bonnie & Clyde includes: Patrick Fitzwater (Director), Manny Schvartzman (Music Director), Sean McClelland (Scenic Designer), Lance Blank (Lighting Designer), Danny Butler (Sound Designer), and Rick Peña (Costume Designer).
Slow Burn Theatre Company is an award winning locally based professional theatre group providing South Florida’s diverse population with opportunities to experience high quality, daring, contemporary and intelligent works of musical theatre.
