Come From Away and Bonnie & Clyde to tour to Edinburgh

Two of the biggest recent West End musicals have announced tours which are coming to Edinburgh in 2024, with both putting tickets on sale today, Wednesday 31 May 2023.

Bonnie & Clyde the Musical will be playing the Festival Theatre Tue 2 to Sat 6 July 2024 (tickets here) after playing the Glasgow King’s in April (Tue 16 to Sat 20, tickets here.)

Come From Away is the Edinburgh Playhouse Tue 17 – Sat 21 Sept 2024 (tickets here) before playing the Glasgow King’s the following week, Tue 24 – Sat 28 Sept (tickets here).

Bonnie & Clyde Poster

Bonnie & Clyde the Musical, which took Best New Musical at the What’sOnStage Awards 2023, is set to hold-up theatres across the UK after two hell-raising seasons in London’s West End.

Two small-town kids from the middle of nowhere became the biggest folk heroes in all America. They craved adventure—and each other. She was Bonnie and he was Clyde. Their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the attention of an entire nation.

mass following

Fearless, shameless and alluring, this award-winning production has garnered a mass following, much like the infamous pair themselves. It features music by Tony nominee Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde), lyrics by Tony and Oscar winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard), a book by Emmy Award nominee Ivan Menchell, and is directed by Nick Winston.

Come From Away Poster

On a rather more gentle tip, Come from Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives with open hearts.

Winner of four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical in London and the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical on Broadway, this smash hit show spirited locals and global passengers come together to forge friendships that will stay with them forever.

hope, humanity and unity

The first female American Airlines captain, the quick-thinking town mayor, the mother of a New York firefighter and the eager local news reporter are among the many real characters caught at the start of the moment that changed the course of history and whose stories became a true celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Tony Award-winning director Christopher Ashley alongside Olivier Award-winning writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein bring this uplifting true story to the stage in a life-affirming production that has audiences on their feet night after night.

Casting for both tours will be announced at a later date.
