Musique: Frank Wildhorn
Paroles: Don Black
Livret: Ivan Menchell
Production à la création:

In Depression-era West Texas, Bonnie, a 23 year old waitress in a diner, dreams of leaving ("Short Order World"). Clyde, who has just broken out of prison with his brother Buck Barrow, tries to steal her mother's car. Bonnie recognizes another dreamer ("This World will Remember Me") and falls in love with him. They are captured by The Sheriff and Deputy Ted, who is enamoured of Bonnie, and Clyde is given a prison sentence. Blanche, Buck's wife, had warned that "You're Goin' Back to Jail". Bonnie smuggles in a gun and Clyde again breaks out of prison, killing a deputy. They then start a life of crime, joined by Buck and Blanche, robbing banks and travelling to avoid being caught. Bonnie writes poetry about their life. They murder others and Buck himself is killed. There is intense press coverage, even publishing Bonnie's poems. As they return to visit their parents, including Emma, Bonnie's mother, Ted follows them. The Sheriff vows to track them down ("The Long Arm of the Law"), and they are finally killed in a shoot-out.

Previously, Black and Wildhorn collaborated on Dracula, the Musical, which also had its world premiere in La Jolla. Wildhorn got in touch with Black about the possibility of writing a song cycle based on the story of Bonnie and Clyde. They released a demo of songs - five of which are still in the present musical - them with Michael Lanning and Linda Eder for Atlantic Records. The music contains elements of country and western, the Blues, and Broadway pop.
In February 2009, the show held an industry-only reading at Roundabout Theatre Company, starring Laura Osnes as Bonnie and Stark Sands as Clyde. It was directed by Jeff Calhoun. Other featured and ensemble cast were Rob Evan, Kelsey Fowler, Natalie Hill, Michael Lanning, David Larsen, Jacob Levine, Brynn O'Malley, Geoff Packard, Tricia Paoluccio, Jessica Phillips, Nancy Ringham, Bart Shatto, Marty Thomas, Ben Thompson, Tad Wilson and Betsy Wolfe.
