A Bronx Tale

Co-directed by Robert De Niro and Jerry Zaks

Featuring a book by actor, screenwriter, and producer Chazz Palminteri, music by Alan Menken (Aladdin) and lyrics by Glenn Slater (Aladdin, School of Rock), A Bronx Tale is inspired by the real life story of Palminteri. The streetwise musical will take 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. Featuring a doo-wop score, A Bronx Tale is a story about respect, loyalty, love, and above all else: family.

A one-man play, written and performed by Palminteri, premiered in Los Angeles in 1990 and soon moved to off-Broadway. Following a 1993 film adaptation headlined and helmed by De Niro and penned by and co-starring Palminteri, the play ran on Broadway in 2007.
