"They craved adventure - and each other. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, this is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire nation.

"Taking on the role of Clyde Barrow is musical theatre fandom favourite Alex James-Hatton (Heathers, Newsies).

R&B and Soul singer-songwriter Jaz Ellington (The Voice UK, Eurovision: You Decide) will star as The Preacher. Nate Landskroner (Waitress and Heathers) will alternate the role of Clyde Barrow at midweek matinee performances.”

The production features music by multi-Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award nominee Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Death Note), lyrics by Tony and Oscar winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard, Aspects of Love), a book by Emmy Award nominee Ivan Menchell (Blended [movie], The Cemetery Club, Death Note The Musical).
