A BRONX TALE Makes Fort Worth Debut

The first national tour of the hit Broadway musical, A BRONX TALE comes to Bass Performance Hall July 23-28, 2019 as part of Performing Arts Fort Worth’s 2018-2019 Broadway at the Bass series.

Based on Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri’s one-man show – a show that inspired the now-classic film – this streetwise musical takes audiences 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. This is a tale about respect, loyalty, love, and above all else: family.

A BRONX TALE evolved from the one-man Off-Broadway play, A Bronx Tale, written and performed by Chazz Palminteri in 1989. During the original Off Broadway and subsequent Los Angeles engagements, Robert De Niro came to see the show, and brought the story and star Palminteri to the screen in 1993, making his film directorial debut in the process. Following the success of the film, Palminteri performed the one-man show A Bronx Tale on Broadway in the 2007-2008 Season.

The musical features music by Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Grammy Award winner and Oscar and Tony Award nominee Glenn Slater. It was directed by two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, with choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo.
