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 second column, The Buck Barrow Edition, we reveal Claybourne Elder's favorite food - the sugar-packed Lucky Charms cereal. What will his trainer say?
Check back tomorrow for the Blanche Barrow/Melissa van der Schyff Edition!
BUCK BARROW / Claybourne Elder
Buck Barrow is a family man. Torn between his loyalty to his audacious brother Clyde and his moral wife Blanche, Buck struggles to do the right thing during the trying times of the Depression. He knows it’s safer back at home, but desperate circumstance and devilish intrigue lead him back to his life of crime. Buck knows it’s better to feel alive than settle for a dead-end future.
Claybourne Elder makes his Broadway debut as "Buck" having originated the role at La Jolla Playhouse & Asolo Rep. He recently starred to rave reviews as "Ollie" in Moisés Kaufman's acclaimed adaptation of Tennessee Williams'One Arm for Tectonic Project & The New Group. He made his New York debut in the World Premiere of Sondheim's Road Show, in which he originated the role of "Hollis Bessemer"; he can also be heard on the original cast recording. He was also featured at the recent 80th Birthday Celebration Concert for Sondheim at City Center. Claybourne also originated the role of Charles Lindbergh in the US premiere of Maltby and Shire's Take Flight. Recent credits include Wolf/Cinderella's Prince in Moises Kaufman's revival of Into the Woods (Kansas City Rep).
