During the show’s final performance on Sunday (10 July), producer Dan Looney teased future plans for the production.

As well as a UK tour and return to London, a West End cast recording was also announced.

Looney told cheering audience members: “Keep your eyes and ears peeled to all of our social medias there is going to be news of as UK tour, there is going to be news of a cast recording.

“I promise you we are doing everything we can to make sure this is not the last time you’ve seen the show in London.”

The London production starred Frances Mayli McCann as Bonnie Parker, Jordan Luke Gage as Clyde Barrow, Natalie McQueen as Blanche Barrow and George Maguire as Buck Barrow.

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.

Bonnie & Clyde has a book by Ivan Menchell, a Tony Award nominated score by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black.
