NEW SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: HIT MUSICAL BONNIE & CLYDE COMES TO NEWCASTLE THEATRE ROYAL
Fan-favourite and winner of Best New Musical (What’sOnStage Awards 2023),
Bonnie & Clyde The Musical is coming to Newcastle Theatre Royal (Tue 1 – Sat 5 Oct 2024) as part of its much-anticipated first UK tour.
Leading lady and Coronation Street and Strictly Come Dancing star, Catherine Tyldesley will make her musical theatre debut as Blanche Barrow. She is joined by EastEnders actor Danny Hatchard who will play the role of Clyde Barrow in his musical theatre debut.
After wowing audiences in the West End and International Tour of Bat Out of Hell, Katie Tonkinson will play Bonnie Parker.
Sam Ferriday, who has appeared in hit musicals such as Heathers, The Cher Show and Jersey Boys will play the role of Marvin “Buck” Barrow. Nate Landskroner of Waitress and Heathers will alternate the role of Clyde Barrow at midweek matinee performances.
The UK & Ireland tour follows hot on the heels of two hell-raising hit seasons in London’s West End at the Arts Theatre and the Garrick Theatre. The eagerly-awaited West End cast album was released in July and is available on all streaming platforms.
Bonnie & Clyde The Musical is the story of two small-town kids from the middle of nowhere who became the biggest folk heroes in all America. They craved adventure – and each other. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, this is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire nation.
The production features music by Tony® nominee Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlett Pimpernell), lyrics by Tony® and Oscar® winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard, Aspects of Love), a book by Emmy® Award nominee Ivan Menchell (Blended [movie], The Cemetery Club, Death Note The Musical).
