TUTS Underground brings Bonnie & Clyde to Zilka Hall
Bonnie & Clyde, the infamous bank-robbing lovers are on their way to Houston and are accompanied by an electrifying cast!
TUTS Underground is thrilled to present Bonnie & Clyde, the story of two small-town nobodies in West Texas who became America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. The show will run October 1 – 11 in Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
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.
