Listen to the story of Bonnie and Clyde
Frank Wildhorn and Don Black's paean to the story of the his-and-hers American folk heroes comes to town this fall in this revival from Kokandy Productions. Telling the story of the notorious pair and their rise from petty crime to their death in a hail of police gunfire during The Great Depression, Bonnie & Clyde is an ambitiously romantic, adventurous ride for those who wish to delve deeper into the lives of these outlaws and their mission to live life to the full.
Hailing from West Texas, Bonnie and Clyde met in the early 1930s at the height of a wave of gangsters and their exploits gripping the nation. Bonnie, then a diner waitress, dreamed of escaping to a life in the movies and Clyde was a petty criminal in love with money. After robbing a few stores, they and their graduated to bank robbing, leading to a killing spree that was to be their fateful demise.
Immortalised in film in 1967, tales of their crimes have entered the pop cultural canon, rising them above criminality to become an alluring star-crossed couple, fighting fearlessly for freedom.
Expect to hear a score fusing together rockabilly, gospel, blues and more of the era's music to tell the infamous story of Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow.
