A quick translation from the press release by the Danish Royal Theatre about Tom Waits and Robert Wilson‘s play based on the story of Bonnie and Clyde. The play, entitled Death car, is set to premiere on November 7, 2014 in Copenhagen.

The production Death car reunites Tom Waits and Robert Wilson, who collaborated on productions like The black rider and Woyzeck, for the first time in 14 years.

Death car is inspired by the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, a romantically involved couple of bankrobbers that defied authorities and caused a national media frenzy in the US in the 1930’s.

Their dramatic life is packed with feaurures that continue to fascinate present day audiences all over the world: a sheer lack of respect for banks and authorities, fast cars, weapons, violence, a love story, a desperate escape and their inevitable death.

The play is produced by Nicolai Vemming / UnlimitedArts in collaboration with the Royal Theatre and a number of international partners.

Producer Nicolai Vemming:

We look forward to working with the Royal Theatre and to produce Death car in the beautiful Playhouse.’

Royal Theatre director Emmet Feigenberg:

‘The Royal Theatre is very proud that this large, international cooperation will have its world premiere at Playhouse in Copenhagen. Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan and Bob Wilson are great artists and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with them.’

Death car will have it’s premiere at the Royal Theatre, Playhouse, 7 November 2014.

According to Danish paper Berlingske, the actors are Danish and the production will travel to Germany, Norway and The Netherlands after the Copenhagen run.

There are plenty of Waits tribute albums around, but this one is sort of special: Shirim Meshumashim (Used Songs), a  Hebrew cover album.

I don’t read or understand Hebrew, so I don’t have too much information about it, but you can listen to it here or buy it here.

More information in Heeb Magazine.

The Jeffrey Gaskill Kickstarter project Help produce the songs of Blind Willie Johnson got funded successfully. It was close, but with over $30,000 pledged the very last day, 956 backers raised $125,154 of the $125,000 goal.

If all goes according to plan, that means we can look forward to two Tom Waits songs: Soul of a man and John the Revelator.
