Bonnie and Clyde the Musical (2022)


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, Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. The show features the songs 'Raise A Little Hell', 'This World Will Remember Me' and 'Made In America'.

When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame, combined with a desperate need to lift themselves out of the endless banality and poverty of West Dallas, set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behaviour turns the young lovers' thrilling adventure into a 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 infamous duo's fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

A sold-out concert version of the Broadway musical Bonnie & Clyde was filmed in the West End starring Broadway leading man Jeremy Jordan alongside rising West End star Frances Mayli McCann.

The staged concert was filmed at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane during its two scheduled performances on January 17-18, 2022.

Producers for the filmed version hoped that the capture will reimagine the title for a new generation of audiences, following the short and unsuccessful Broadway run in 2011.

The film is produced by David Treatman Creative, STEAM Motion and Sound (production company for the filmed stage productions of Aladdin, Waitress the Musical, Kinky Boots, The Phantom of the Opera, and more), Fourth Wall Live, and DLAP Group.
