A Bronx Tale - The Musical

A Bronx Tale Tickets

A Bronx Tale has been told in various forms since the 1980s. It began life as a one-man play in Los Angeles, written and performed by Chazz Palminteri, before it transferred and made its off-Broadway debut in 1989. A film adaptation, starring Academy Award winner Robert De Niro (with Palminteri now starring as Sonny) was released in 1993, which also marked De Niro's directorial debut. In October 2007, Palminteri would reprise his performance in the one-man play on the Great White Way at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre until finally - after an out-of-town-tryout at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey in February 2016 - the story would return to Broadway as a musical adaptation. A Bronx Tale - The Musical would officially open at the Longacre Theatre on December 1, 2016. The show features a book by Palminteri himself and also marks the Broadway directorial debut for Robert De Niro, who co-directs the musical alongside Broadway veteran Jerry Zaks.

About A Bronx Tale:

Based on the one-man show that inspired the now classic film, this streetwise musical will take you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s—where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be. Featuring an infectious doo-wop score, this is a tale about respect, loyalty, love, and above all else: family.

Our A Bronx Tale Review

It is the rare Broadway show that leaves its audience disturbed by gun violence and racial slurs even as they go happily humming doo-wop on their way out of the theater. And indeed it is the rare Broadway show that attempts to portray gangsters as something other than secretly good-hearted slobs. But such is the case with A Bronx Tale, a winningly performed but losing-ly scripted musical based... Read more
