FEBRUARY 21 = 23, 2020 Three years ago, Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri teamed up with Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, Tony® Award winner Jerry Zaks and Tony® Award nominee Sergio Trujillo to create this streetwise musical - based on Palminteri's true life story. A BRONX TALE, Broadway's hit crowd-pleaser, takes 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. Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Glenn Slater (Love Never Dies), A BRONX TALE is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family. The New York Times hails A BRONX TALE as "A Critics' Pick! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry."
