STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek of Korean BONNIE AND CLYDE; Opens Tonight in Seoul!
Bonnie & Clyde returns to Seoul this month, as the Frank Wildhorn musical will open at the BBC Arts Center tonight. The production is set to run through June 29. Check out a trailer for the Korean version of the show below!
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.
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. Bonnie and Clyde will also be making its debut in Melbourne, Australia later in 2014.
