BREAKDOWN

Based on the critically acclaimed play 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 original doo-wop score by Alan Menken, this is a tale about respect, loyalty, love and above all else: family.
