Jamie Muscato and Evelyn Hoskins will take on the title roles in Bonnie & Clyde, the fourth production in The Other Palace’s Work In Progress series later this month.
Muscato (Lazarus), who appeared in the first Work In Progress, Heathers The Musical, and Hoskins (Spring Awakening) who appeared in the third production – Joybubbles – will feature in performances of Bonnie & Clyde on Monday 26 June, Thursday 29 June, Friday 30 June and Saturday 1 July.
The cast also includes Sam Ferriday, Joshua Dever, Rebecca Trehearn, Ako Mitchell, Amy Booth-Steel, Nicolas Colicos, Rebecca Lock, Graham Bickley, Stanley Jarvis and Lucy Simmonds.
Frank Wildhorn and Don Black’s Bonnie & Clyde features a book by Ivan Menchell. The musical version of the story of one of America’s most famous criminal couples had a short run on Broadway at the end of 2011.
The Other Palace’s Work in Progress series offers productions a space to create, develop and explore their work. Each show has a public sharing where audiences can be the first not only to see the new work but also help in the development of the show by offering feedback and opinion. The audience feedback is then given to the production to help inform the next stage of the project’s development.
Formerly the St. James Theatre, the newest addition to The Really Useful Theatres Group, launched as The Other Palace in February with ambitious plans to discover, develop and reimagine musicals.
