Slow Burn Theatre’s latest musical “Bonnie and Clyde” ends this weekend in West Boca. But don’t fret the show will be moving to the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center for a one weekend run Feb. 12-15.
The short lived Broadway show tells the story of two of America’s most infamous criminals, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
Slow Burn is known for resurrecting out of the box musicals and giving them new life.
“The actors who played Bonnie and Clyde had the ability to make the audience fall in love with them, despite the fact that they were killing people. Clyde was so endearing, I was falling in love with him. They brought so much passion into their characters. I was crying at the end,” said Jeff Wolmetz. While Brendon Lies added, “Even though the entire show was very dark it was laced with a lot of elements of hope you often feel in your life.”
Both theatergoers enjoyed the ending that put twist a on the death of the main characters.
This will be theater’s last season at West Boca High. They’ll be moving to the Broward Center’s Amaturo Theatre, a sure loss for Palm Beach County.
