The West End producer of Bonnie and Clyde teased big plans for the show.
Taking the stage for the final performance of the production at the Arts Theater in London, producer Dan Looney unveiled future announcements for the much-loved UK premiere of the musical by Frank Wildhorn, Don Black and Ivan Menchell. It tells the story of the iconic outlaws who fled in the early 20th century to the United States.
Looney said during the production’s curtain call that there were plans for a UK tour and cast recording underway, with full details to be revealed soon. For the chance to find out first, be sure to follow our social feeds and sign up for WhatsOnStage newsletters.
Looney continued, “We’re doing everything we can to make sure this isn’t the last you see. Bonnie and Clyde in London… This is not the end of our story… we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
