Though innocent of the crimes committed by their onstage counterparts, the stars of the new shoot-'em-up Broadway musical, BONNIE AND CLYDE, which opened at the Schoenfeld Theatre on December 1, 2011, are no guiltless parties. For BroadwayWorld's newest photo feature, BUSTED!, we tracked down the stars and got them to confess their biggest guilty pleasure. In this first column, The Clyde Barrow Edition, we found out how Jeremy Jordan spends his free time. Yes, he still watches cartoons.
Check back tomorrow for the Buck Barrow/Claybourne Elder Edition!
CLYDE BARROW/Jeremy Jordan
As his sister-in-law says, Clyde Barrow puts the “hell” in “hello.” With Billy the Kid as a childhood idol, it’s no wonder that Clyde was in and out of jail 7 times before he even met Bonnie Parker. He’s a good man in a bad situation, trying to provide for his folks and girlfriend in a time when there’s neither job nor dollar to be found. Clyde lives an invigorating life on the lam, robbing banks and bringing home the booty. His devilish charm and pride make him a leading man, but may also be his tragic flaw.
Jeremy Jordan's Broadway credits include West Side Story (Tony) and Rock of Ages. Recently, he completed a critically acclaimed turn as Jack Kelly in the world premiere of Newsies at the Paper Mill Playhouse. In January of 2012, he stars in the feature film, "Joyful Noise" with Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah. Regional credits include Bonnie and Clyde (Asolo Rep.), Big River (Goodspeed), The Little Dog Laughed (Hartford Theatreworks; Critics' Circle Nomination). On television, he has appeared in "Law & Order: SVU." He holds a BFA from Ithaca College.
