Why See A Bronx Tale?

Broadway ShowsMusicalsCritics Picks

Listen Here Kid...

Two time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jarry Zaks bring their incredible New York musical to cities across America. A Bronx Tale takes place in the early 1960s and follows the story of a young man caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be.

The story is based on Chaz Palminteri's critically acclaimed solo play which inspired the now classic film that De Niro adapted.

Transporting You To The 1960s

The swinging music comes from the tremendous Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award-winning composer Alan Menken, who has scored many of Disney's iconic classics, including Beauty and The Beast, Tangled and Aladdin. Tony nominee Glen Slater wrote the lyrics, and together they bring this tale to life.

What is A Bronx Tale About?

There's only one man who rules the bustling Italian-American neighbourhood of the Bronx - mob boss Sonny. When young Calogero's path unexpectedly meets Sonny's, and he witnesses Sonny carrying out a hit, Italian loyalty means Calogero refuses to name Sonny to the cops. Impressed with the Calogero's spirit, Sonny takes the young man under his wing and as he heads deeper into the world of a mobster, his father must try and wrestle him away from a life of crime before his son wastes his talent.

The Color Purple has been born again... The current version is a slim, fleet-footed beauty, simply attired and beguilingly modest. Don't be deceived, though, by its air of humility. There's a deep wealth of power within its restraint.
