Producer of In The Heights, Joshua Robson Productions (formally Blue Saint Productions), is excited to bring another professional premiere to Sydney.
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 Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & 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 fro excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behaviour turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the famous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws near.
Directed and choreographed by Amy Campbell (In The Heights, Hair), Bonnie & Clyde is a thrilling and sexy musical with a non-traditional score, combing blues, gospel and rockabilly music.
