Not only does Lily Bartleson play two roles in Bonnie & Clyde (Trish and Governor Ferguson), you may recognize her friendly voice and bright smile when you stop by the Box Office or call to buy tickets this summer!
PP: Do you have a favorite scene or song in this show?
Lily: I have a favorite scene and a favorite song. My favorite scene would have to be the first beauty parlor scene. Very humorous – a good look into the relationship of Blanche and Buck, as well as a sense of who her friend’s are (sassy and judgemental, but ridiculously funny). My favorite song, that I have recently fallen in love with, is Bonnie’s song, “How ‘Bout a Dance?” This is a very intimate song; however, those of us who are almost ready to make something of ourselves and find our place in this world (specifically in this industry) can relate. Some want to be known through fame, passion and drive. That’s what Bonnie wanted, too.
PP: What do you think audiences will enjoy about the musical?
Lily: This musical takes a magnifying glass on the two most notoriously known criminals during the 1930s. This isn’t just about stealing money or committing crimes. This story is about the life of those who suffered through the dust bowl and how they survived. The true story of real people making it through real events.
