MONTREAL, February 25th, 2019. From April 25th to 28th, emerging theatre company Contact Theatre presents its debut production, Bonnie and Clyde: a new musical. Staged at the Mainline Theatre, the venue will host an intimate audience for one weekend only to witness a passionate adventure.

Camille Cormier Morasse and Joel Bernstein portray outlaws Bonnie and Clyde for the first time on the English Montreal stage. “Playing the famous ravishing redhead is more than exciting for me. Because we are portraying real people, we get to really explore the depths of their backgrounds while building our own unique versions,” says Morasse.

Featuring music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Don Black, the show explores the true story of two impassioned revolutionaries who ultimately choose their commitment to each other over everything else.

“The goal is to create a world of mobility versus stagnance. The characters have a strong desire to move forward, to accomplish something great, but they’re trapped in a historical moment where that is next to impossible.” unveils Artistic director and choreographer Debora Friedmann. “We don’t glorify the life of crime the heroes chose, we humanize them and create empathy for our infamous couple.”

Contact Theatre is a new musical company that tackles provocative shows with intense subject matter. The group was founded by prominent talents in the Montreal theatre scene, Ally Brumer and Debora Friedmann. The duo as mostly notably recognized for their partnership on The Addams Family Musical by the West Island Theatre Association, nominated for Best Musical at the 2018 Montréal English Theatre Awards. Following their success in the West Island, the team brought their talents into the city to harvest their own theatre community.
