Bonnie & Clyde
The may not have been model citizens, but the legacy of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow has endured in the decades since they fired their last shots. The lives of the youthful bandits have become an American folk story of sorts, the small town Texans-turned-bank robbers epitomizing glamorous youth and freedom amidst the hardscrabble realities of the Great Depression.
In the near-century since Bonnie and Clyde’s dramatic deaths, their escapades have been immortalized in popular songs, as a televised miniseries, and an acclaimed film starring the immaculately hatted Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The duo’s story came to the Broadway stage as a Tony-nominated musical in 2009, with a blend of rockabilly and blues following their escapades from first take to final blaze of glory. Composer Frank Wildhorn is no stranger to the glamorous, ampersanded dualities of good and evil, having written Broadway’s Jekyll &Hyde as well. The tuneful drama now makes its regional debut at the San Jose Stage.
San Jose Stage Company
San Jose Stage Company—hailed as “the company that never says never” by Stark Insider and one of “Ten small Bay Area theater companies you should know” by the San Jose Mercury News—has been producing and premiering works of explosive power and social resonance since 1983. Professional actors fill the stage with new and classic works by the likes of David Mamet and Neil LaBute every year, but the company’s work extends beyond its intimate theater space—whose capacity of 200 ensures no one gets a bad seat or, probably, runs into the evil twin they haven’t met yet. Programming spills into the streets of San Jose in events that have included indie hip-hop concerts, art-walk performances, and partnerships with smaller theater groups and high-school drama classes.
