Bonnie & Clyde
America’s most notorious lovers and bank robbers take the country by storm in this sexy and compelling adventure.
This licensed orchestration is based on the Original 2011 Broadway production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 1 book and there are two keyboard books for this show but only Keyboard 2 has programming.
Keyboard 1/PC is meant to be played by the conductor and is piano only. It does require a proficient piano player who can play jazz, groove, and stride piano well.
Keyboard 2 is a fairly playable book compared to other Keyboard 2 books in the musical theater catalog. There is a decent amount of programming but nothing too daunting. Most of the patches are keyboard based instruments (organ, electric piano, harpsichord) as well as lots of strings and harp. This book can be played by a proficient high school student who is comfortable playing in difficult keys. It would be helpful to know basic chord notation as well since there are some chords that are not written out.

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 Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country.
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 behavior 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.
