Dyin’ ain’t so bad. Not if you both go together. Only when one’s left behind does it get sad. But a short and lovin’ life, that ain’t so bad.
– Bonnie Parker from Bonnie and Clyde: The Musical adapted by Frank Wildhorn, Don Black and Ivan Menchell
In March 2016, Play On Words Productions embarked on an exhilarating and ambitious production of Bonnie and Clyde: The Musical. The musical explores a fearless and true story of wild passion and thirst for fame told through memorable music and relatable characters. From their first meeting, Bonnie and Clyde are immediately connected by their desire to be bigger than their small town lives. They set off together to chase their dreams. When their reckless adventure goes awry it’s sets them on a downward spiral, with their friends and family following in tow.
