SHOWS

BON­NIE & CLYDE

Spot­light The­atre: 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 night­mare. Fear­less, shame­less and al­lur­ing, their elec­tri­fy­ing story of love, ad­ven­ture and crime cap­tured the ex­cited at­ten­tion of an en­tire coun­try. Di­rec­tor Brad Ken­drick’s ver­sion of their tale fo­cuses more on their love story than any­thing else. The pop score by Frank Wild­horn keeps the show from get­ting too dark, no mat­ter what the sub­ject mat­ter, and al­lows for plenty of vo­cal py­rotech­nics from its lead­ing play­ers. Opens to­mor­row night and plays Thurs­days to Satur­days at 7.30pm un­til June 4, with mati­nees on May 22 and 29 at 2pm. Tick­ets $20. spot­lightthe­atre.com.au
