Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, A Bronx Tale made its Broadway debut in December 2016. Based on the critically acclaimed autobiographical play that inspired the now classic film, the musical tells the coming-of-age story of a young New York man who struggles with the choice of either giving in to the temptations of life in organized crime, or following the working-class family values of his loving father. A Bronx Tale was written by Chazz Palminteri, who starred in the film adaption and joined the Broadway production in May 2018.
A national tour is set to launch in October with a performance in Rochester, New York. The production will journey coast-to-coast, hitting a total of 20 cities including San Francisco, Denver, Fort Myers and Washington, DC. The tour will continue well into the new year with a final performance slotted for June 30 in New Haven, CT.
The cast will feature Richard Blake (Jersey Boys, Legally Blonde) as Lorenzo, Adam Kaplan (Newsies, Kinky Boots) as Calogero, Kimber Sprawl (Beautiful) as Jane, and Lucia Giannetta (Les Misérables) as Rosina.
A Bronx Tale features choreography by Tony Award nominee Sergio Trujillo, and songs by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken and three-time Tony Award nominee Glenn Slater.
