I can't tell you how excited I am to see this show. Now believe it or not but I have never seen the movie. This coming from a huge Robert De Niro fan. However, I did get a chance to see the Broadway production of A Bronx Tale, starring it's writer and creator Chaz Palminteri when it played at the Walter Kerr Theatre in the Fall of 2007.
That production ran from October 4 thru February 24, 2008 where it recouped it's entire investment. That production was directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, who is co-directing this new production with Mr. De Niro. Oh and did I mention that this new production is a musical? Well it is.
In fact it is being written by the play's author, with a score by Tony and Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Music) and Glenn Slater (Lyrics). Pretty impressive team don't you think? The new musical, which begins previews tonight at the Longacre Theatre, will officially open on December 1. Oh and one more thing.
It is now possible to get tickets to see A Bronx Tale for prices that can't be beat. Who doesn't love a bargain right? Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru April 2, 2017, it is for select seats, and must be purchased by December 3. Get your tickets to see A Bronx Tale on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre on Broadway. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
