BREAKDOWN

Set against the turbulent 1960s, A Bronx Tale follows a young Italian-American teenager finding his path in life as guided by two father figures. A Bronx Tale, the musical is based on the one-man play of the same name by Chazz Palminteri.

CALOGERO:
(Adult actor 18+ to play 17) A young likeable Italian-American teenager. He steps in and out of narrating the show. Excellent singer (tenor or very high baritone, with a flair for 60s rock-and-roll) who moves well. Principal.
SONNY:
(30s/40s) Italian. The number one man in the neighborhood. He’s the leader of the wise guys. Powerful and charismatic. Strong singer; full voice to G above middle C a plus, should be “at home” with stylings of Frank Sinatra / Tony Bennett / Dean Martin / Bobby Darin. Principal

LORENZO:
(30s/40s) Italian. Calogero’s father. Strong and sympathetic. He works as a bus driver. Excellent tenor or high baritone; ability to express honest emotion while singing more important than vocal fireworks. Principal.
YOUNG CALOGERO:
(child – must believably play 9 yrs. old) – Calogero’s younger self. Excellent singer who moves very well. Principal

ROSINA:
(30s/40s) Italian. Calogero’s mother. Sensible and beautiful. Strong singer, warm mezzo or alto voice preferred. Principal.

JANE:
(Adult actor 18+ to play 17) African-American. Calogero falls in love with her. Striking and smart. Excellent singer who moves well; should be completely “at home” as the lead singer of a girl group. Principal
