NEW YORK, N.Y. – November 19, 2019 – The 2016 Broadway musical A Bronx Tale, which has been playing to sold-out houses nationwide, is now available for professional and amateur licensing from Broadway Licensing. In addition to the Broadway version, Broadway Licensing has released a High School edition of the musical.
Based on Chazz Palminteri’s book and film about growing up in the mafia, A Bronx Tale: The Musical features a book by Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri, music by Oscar, Grammy, and Tony Award winner Alan Menken, and lyrics by Grammy Award winner and Oscar and Tony Award nominee Glenn Slater. The Broadway hit premiered at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey prior to its Broadway transfer.
Palminteri said “A Bronx Tale started as a one-man show to a major motion picture and now a Broadway hit musical. It’s all because it has a great story with a message that touches the human heart. I’m delighted to be working with Broadway Licensing to tell my story in communities across the country and beyond.”
A Bronx Tale: The Musical, according to press notes, is “set against the backdrop of racial strife and organized crime in the 1960s. It is the story of an Italian-American teenager finding his path in life as he must choose between the father who raised him and a mob-boss father figure who fascinates him.”
“A Bronx Tale has been one of the true joys of my life and my career. It has exceeded all expectations on Broadway and I cannot wait until audiences around the country and all over the world experience this musical,” said Menken.
The national tour of A Bronx Tale is currently making stops at cities around the country till May 2020. Learn more and purchase tickets at https://bronxtalemusical.com/.
