A BRONX TALE, Broadway's hit crowd-pleaser, takes you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960's, where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be. Chazz Palminteri teamed up with Robert De Niro, Jerry Zaks and Sergio Trujillo to create this streetwise musical, based on Palminteri's true life story.
