Bonnie & Clyde The Musical description
Bonnie and Clyde The Musical – A true tale ending in tragedy
There’s something about a true story that makes it even more special, more powerful, more impactful. This is the true story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, also known as Bonnie and Clyde. Tired of being poor and bored of struggling to survive, the couple met and began a violent journey that ended in their untimely deaths at the hands of the law. They robbed their way around central USA throughout the Great Depression, and the only thing that stopped them was the lawmen’s guns. This is their story, told in musical form.
What's the story behind Bonnie and Clyde The Musical?
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow started life as a couple of small-town nobodies living in remote West Texas. They ended their lives as America's most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement's worst nightmare.
The couple were fearless, shameless, and always alluring. Their glamour entranced the nation, and their love story inspired a smash hit movie. Their crimes horrified people but at the same time the sheer audacity of the robberies fascinated the public, even though they rarely robbed banks but mostly stuck to small shops and funeral parlours.
Ultimately, as they became bolder and more violent, their reckless behaviour turned the lovers' adventure sour. They put their families at risk, but they couldn’t stop. Eventually, forced to stay on the run, the pair resort to robbery and murder to survive. But this much fame and notoriety can only result in one of two outcomes, either prison or death.
