A Bronx Tale Announces the End of Its Broadway Run
The Broadway production of the A Bronx Tale, directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks and Oscar winner Robert De Niro, will end its Longacre Theatre run on August 5. The production features a book by Palminteri, music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
A Bronx Tale premiered in February 2016 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.
Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri currently appears in the role of Sonny. A Bronx Tale also stars Nick Cordero as Sonny, Richard H. Blake as Lorenzo, Adam Kaplan as Calogero, Hudson Loverro as Young Calogero, Gerald Caesar as Tyrone, Lucia Giannetta as Rosina, Levi Smith as the Young Calogero alternate, and Christiani Pitts as Jane.
The original company featured Nick Cordero as Sonny, Richard H. Blake as Lorenzo, Lucia Gianetta as Rosina, Bobby Conte Thornton as Calogero, Ariana DeBose as Jane, and Bradley Gibson as Tyrone.
