Bonnie & Clyde Original Soundtrack
Hand signed by: Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Warren Beatty, Michael J Pollard and Faye Dunaway
Bonnie & Clyde is a musical with music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and a book by Ivan Menchell. The world premiere took place in La Jolla, California in November 2009. The musical centers on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the ill-fated lovers and outlaws whose story has been infamous since they achieved folk hero status during the Great Depression. Wildhorn described the music as a “non-traditional score, combining rockabilly, blues and gospel music”. The La Jolla run was followed by a Sarasota, Florida engagement in 2010.
The musical debuted on Broadway in December 2011, and despite positive audience reception, it failed to impress the critics and achieve good ticket sales, closing after just four weeks. It was nominated for 3 Outer Critics Circle Awards and 5 Drama Desk Awards, both including Best New Musical, as well as two nominations for the 2012 Tony Awards. Subsequent productions have since been staged internationally following the submission of the work to Music Theater International, including productions in Japan, Korea and the U.K.
