Chazz Palminteri's Bronx Tale Musical Takes the Stage at Paper Mill Playhouse
Paper Mill Playhouse has released production photos from its world premiere production of A Bronx Tale. Under the direction of four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks and Oscar winner Robert De Niro, the show runs through March 6.
Based on Chazz Palminteri's acclaimed one-man 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 production features a book by Palminteri, music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
Leading the company are Jason Gotay (Bring It On) as Calogero, Joshua Colley (Les Misérables) as Young Calogero, Tony nominee Nick Cordero (Bullets Over Broadway) as Sonny, Richard H. Blake (Jersey Boys) as Lorenzo, Coco Jones (Let It Shine) as Jane, and Lucia Giannetta (Les Misérables) as Rosina.
