As BroadwayWorld.com first reported on December 6, 2011, producers had taken tickets off sale through Telecharge.com past December 30, 2011. Later, Group Sales promo emails for the show indicated there as well that the show will play its final performance on Broadway on December 30th.
Now, a press release from the production has been posted on Broadway's Best Shows noting that producers have now officially announced that the show will play its final performance on December 30th at 8pm, following 69 performances.
BONNIE & CLYDE opened on Thursday, December 1, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. In the show, two small-town kids from the middle of nowhere became the biggest folk heroes in all America. They craved adventure-and each other. Their names were Bonnie and Clyde and now, this sexy new musical has claimed the Schoenfeld Theatre as its hideout.
BONNIE & CLYDE has direction by Jeff Calhoun, music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black, book by Ivan Menchell and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by John McDaniel.
Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan are joined on stage by Melissa van Der Schyff as Blanche Barrow, Claybourne Elder as Buck Barrow, Joe Hart as Sheriff Schmid and Louis Hobson as Ted Hinton.
