Music is by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics are by Don Black, and the book is by Ivan Menchell.  Rider faculty member Robin Lewis is the director and choreographer and his colleague Nathan Hurwitz is the music director.

At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America's most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. It's a thrilling and sexy musical with a score combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music.  Due to the subject matter, the production may not be suitable for younger viewers.

Nathan Hurwitz has studied acting with Stella Adler, directing with Jack Garfein and conducting with Lehman Engel.  His third book, A Singer's Guide to the Literature of the American Musical Theatre, has just been published by Routledge.  He has not only performed, but has also delivered academic papers around the world. His Broadway credits include Blood Brothers, Dream, and The Phantom of the Opera. At Rider he has served as director or musical director of White Christmas, A Little Night Music, Catch Me If You Can, Lucky Stiff, Nine, and many others.  

At Rider University Robin Lewis has directed or choreographed productions of White Christmas, Spring Awakening, Catch Me If You Can, All Shook Up, The Full Monty, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and The Producers. His film credits include choreography for Bernie, and performances of Fosse and the Tony Awards. His Broadway dance credits include Fosse, Beauty and the Beast and A Christmas Carol. His tour credits include The Producers, A Chorus Line, Hello, Dolly!, Beauty and the Beast, Where's Charley? and Jubilee.
