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 the Great White Way in 2007.Check out Broadway.com’s video chatting to De Niro and the Main Stem company about the new tuner below.
