Broadway review: 'Bonnie & Clyde': a shoot-'em-up love story

10 December 2011 2:17 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

In the opening number of "Bonnie & Clyde" a 10-year-old Bonnie sings about wanting to be like Clara Bow. She wants to be, as that silent screen star was known, the "it girl."

That's the perfect metaphor for this musical at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Like Bonnie, it has the elements that should propel to it stardom -- talent, looks and ambition. Yet that elusive "it" remains just that -- elusive. 

To have it, there must be a spark, and unfortunately, this never quite catches.

That's a shame because there is a tremendous amount to like about this play. The story of the outlaws who robbed and killed during the Depression is ripe for a show. The featured actors are excellent, the set is interesting, particularly the use of old newspaper clippings projected on the backdrop, and the costumes are spot-on, proven as photos of Bonnie are projected.

There are songs, »
