The London Evening Standard
March 9th, 2023

“Too glib to be serious and too po-faced to be a spoof, this Broadway musical about the Depression-era outlaw couple suffers from a criminal lack of focus...It’s just another bouncy, breezy, brainless musical trading on a bit of name-recognition.”

Time Out London
March 9th, 2023

“ ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ feels weirdly oblivious to the reasons why Parker and Barrow are still famous a century on...But if this rose-tinted musical romance was all we had to remember them by, I’m sure their memory would soon expire from sheer boredom.”

The Times (UK)

“We get terrific musicianship and singing, imaginatively murky period design by Philip Whitcomb, in fact tip-top professionalism all round, but without enough substance to fire up the imagination.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
March 9th, 2023

"A show as sensational as this deserves a permanent home in the West End for an open-ended run. But with a show this phenomenal, I’ll take what I can get. After all, a short and loving run ain’t so bad. It really would be a crime to miss this killer show."

“If there is a palatable musical route into the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ story, then neither Winston, Wildhorn nor the rest of creative team have discovered it.”

“While thematically richer than most musicals, Menchell’s plot lines are slightly meandering, though director Nick Winston whips up a sharp pace that cracks through the tragic twosome’s murderous time, never unnecessarily alighting.”

London Theatre

“All the audience needed to see was a smoking gun and that was enough for a night of whooping and hollering. But, for a show with so much potential, it's all too posed and predictable.”

West End Best Friend

"The production as a whole may be slightly flawed but that doesn’t take away from the many explosive and frankly breathtaking moments it exudes."
