So the banks have failed, your government is frozen and the future seems to be nothing but bread lines and misery. How do you scratch financial security out of that dirt? If you're young and daring, perhaps you feel like the best way is just to take the things you want, like Bonnie and Clyde. Frank Wildhorn, Don Black and Ivan Menchell's musical Bonnie & Clyde
recasts the gun-loving young couple as visionaries who see that notoriety and fame are different sides of the same coin -- and if you have enough coins, you're rich. New Line Theatre opens its 24th season with this grim twist on Romeo and Juliet

take place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (October 2 through 25) at the Washington University South Campus Theatre (6501 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; 314-534-1111 or www.newlinetheatre.com
