“Bonnie & Clyde” is a thrilling and sexy musical combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. America’s most notorious lovers and bank robbers take the country by storm.
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 the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, the TONY-nominated “Bonnie & Clyde” from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll And Hyde,” “Civil War,” “Dracula”) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country.
When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and the people they care about in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws near.
