BWW Review: BONNIE AND CLYDE at Harlequin Theatre

BWW Review: BONNIE AND CLYDE at Harlequin Theatre

The singing in Harlequin Theatre's production of Bonnie and Clyde is simply stunning.
This intense action packed story is well delivered and the time flies by quickly.

Director Dan Chasemore affirms that while there are many versions of this story it can't be disputed that Bonnie and Clyde acted in a reaction to a combination of economic desperation, the force of young love and the desire for fame which can lead people to making irrational life-risking decisions.

Chasmore has effectively presented these themes to the audience in a clear and captivating manner.

The singing in this show is superb. If there was no other reason than to get along to listen to the voice of Keith Marr in the role of Clyde then you've spent your time and money well.

However there are plenty of other reasons to hit the iTicket button.

Bonnie, played by Nicolette Nes is superb. She has the look, the voice and the style.
And the top quality performances just keep coming at you. Blanche (Katrina McConnell) is excellent along with Buck (Brian Wolfman) Preacher (Simon Chapman) and well, actually they're all pretty darn good!

Special mention to the young Bonnie (Samara Bayliss and Melody Lui-Webster) and Clyde (Tim Cloves) who deliver Great Performances.

The set is engaging and designed by the well-known John Fausett who cleverly incorporates and ensures the story is kept interesting.

Folks, this show deserves your attention. You won't regret.
The show runs until Saturday 8 July
