Ghostlight Records will celebrate the cast album of Broadway’s A Bronx Tale — The Musical with a special in-store performance and CD signing at the 150 East 86th Street Barnes & Noble on May 12 at 4pm.

Barnes & Noble will welcome cast members Nick Cordero, Richard H. Blake, Bobby Conte Thornton, Ariana DeBose, Lucia Giannetta, Bradley Gibson and Hudson Loverro, in addition to the show’s composer Alan Menken, lyricist Glenn Slater, and book writer Chazz Palminteri as special guests.

While the recording is currently available in digital formats, the date also marks the album’s in-store release. Fans who purchase the CD at the store will be offered priority seating at the event.

Under the direction of four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks and Oscar winner Robert De Niro, A Bronx Tale is based on his acclaimed solo show and subsequent 1993 film of the same name. Set against the backdrop of racial strife and organized crime in the 1960s the show follows an Italian-American teenager must choose between the father who raised him and the mob-boss father figure who fascinates him.

The production, which premiered in February at Paper Mill Playhouse, opened at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre on December 1.
