First Look at Bobby Conte Thornton and Ariana DeBose in Broadway's A Bronx Tale
The new Broadway musical features a book by Chazz Palminteri, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater.
Under the direction of four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks and Oscar winner Robert De Niro, A Bronx Tale premiered in February at Paper Mill Playhouse. Based on Chazz Palminteri's acclaimed solo show and subsequent 1993 film, A Bronx Tale is set against the backdrop of racial strife and organized crime in the 1960s as an Italian-American teenager must choose between the father who raised him and the mob-boss father figure who fascinates him.
The 30-member cast stars Tony Award nominee Nick Cordero (Waitress) as Sonny, Richard H. Blake (Jersey Boys) as Lorenzo, Bobby Conte Thornton (My Fair Lady at Bay Street Theater) as Calogero, Ariana DeBose (Hamilton) as Jane, Lucia Giannetta (A Bronx Tale at Paper Mill Playhouse) as Rosina, Bradley Gibson (Rocky) as Tyrone, and Hudson Loverro (A Christmas Story at Paper Mill Playhouse) as Young Calogero.
The production features a book by Palminteri, music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
