We’ve bad news for fans of Bonnie and Clyde the Musical: The show has cancelled all its remaining tour performances.

A statement released today announced, “Bonnie and Clyde the Musical will conclude its UK and Ireland tour with immediate effect.”

The tour, which began at Leicester Curve in February, received five-star reviews and standing ovations at venues across the country.

Despite its success, disappointing ticket sales have made it financially unviable to continue.

“We would like to thank the extremely hard-working and endlessly talented cast and company that have entertained thousands of audience members across the country with this production,” the producers added.

Bonnie and Clyde had two successful seasons in London’s West End, at the Arts Theatre and the Garrick Theatre.

The show was set to continue in Southend this week ahead of tour dates throughout the year into October.

The musical tells the story of two small-town individuals who became notorious figures in American folklore.

Featuring music by Tony nominee Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Tony and Oscar winner Don Black, and a book by Emmy Award nominee Ivan Menchell, the production boasts an impressive creative team.

A pro-shot of the show’s 2022 West End concert production will be released to stream in June.

However, with the cancellation, fans will have to wait for another opportunity to see this award-winning musical in person.
