Get ready for some event theatre as Broadway stars Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan are reuniting for a one-off performance of the cult hit musical Bonnie and Clyde in London next year.
Bonnie and Clyde in Concert will take place at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Tuesday 18th January 2022 at 7.30pm. The concert is produced by Fourth Wall Live, who have been responsible for bringing some of the biggest Broadway stars over to the UK for concerts, including Jeremy himself several times. This concert will make Laura Osnes' London debut.
Osnes and Jordan played the roles in the short-lived Broadway run in 2011 and this concert will make the first time the pair have reprised their roles in over a decade. Tony Award nominated Laura Osnes was most recently seen on Broadway in Bandstand and has also starred in Anything Goes and South Pacific. Jeremy Jordan is known for his role in TV shows Smash and Supergirl and Broadway shows Newsies and Waitress.
Bonnie and Clyde in Concert has a book by Ivan Menchell, music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and is directed by Nick Winston with musical direction by Katy Richardson. It is produced by Fourth Wall Live and co-produced by DLAP Group, Jason Haigh-Ellery and David Treatman Creative.
At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America's most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. The show features the songs “Raise A Little Hell”, “This World Will Remember Me” and “Made In America”.
When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behaviour turns the young lovers' thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo's fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.
