VIDEO: Robert DeNiro Talks Broadway-Bound A BRONX TALE on 'Tonight'
On last night's TONIGHT SHOW, guest Robert De Niro talked to Jimmy about his new boxing drama HANDS OF STONE. Later, the actor discusses co-directing the Broadway-bound musical A BRONX TALE. "I've always thought it would be a terrific musical," he shares. Watch the appearance below!
A BRONX TALE THE MUSICAL will open on Broadway on Thursday, December 1, 2016 at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street). Previews will begin Thursday, November 3, 2016. The new musical will be co-directed by two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, with choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo. A Bronx Tale: The Musical features a book by Chazz Palminteri, music by Alan Menken and lyrics byGlenn Slater.
A BRONX TALE THE MUSICAL premiered at the Tony Award-winning Paper Mill Playhouse to critical and popular acclaim February 4, 2016, through March 6, 2016.
Based on the one-man show that inspired the now classic film, this 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 an infectious doo-wop score, this is a tale about respect, loyalty, love, and above all else: family.
