A Bronx Tale, Chazz Palminteri’s solo show loosely based on his upbringing in the Bronx, began its life back in 1989 when it premiered in LA. An Off-Broadway production followed, which prompted Robert De Niro to direct the 1993 movie starring Palminteri as the gangster Sonny, who took a young Calogero (Chazz’s given name) under his wing. De Niro played Calogero’s working-class father. In 2007, just as Tony Soprano ate his last meatball, Palminteri brought the solo show to Broadway. Now it’s a musical directed by De Niro and four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Palminteri.
Audience: Teens and Adults
