The Aurora Theatre has extended its hit new play “Clyde ‘n Bonnie: A Folktale” until April 15, the theater announced today. Most performances have sold out a week in advance, which is very rare for a regional theater producing a brand-new work.
Here’s ArtsATL’s take on the show, from Phil Kloer:
“Clyde ‘n Bonnie” is a wacky, strikingly original work with a book by Hunter Foster (“Summer of ’42”) and music and lyrics by Rick Crom (“Newsical, the Musical”), directed by Broadway veteran Lonny Price (the recent Stephen Sondheim “Company” revival) and choreographed by Josh Rhodes, who collaborated on “Company.” They’ve created a musical that is small of scale but big of heart, busy to the point of frenetic but in the best way possible, and one that shows off an extremely talented and hard-working cast to the greatest advantage. Like the couple it celebrates, it has what it takes to become legendary.
