A Bronx Tale

  • Eisenhower Auditorium The Pennsylvania State University University Park, PA 16802 (map)

Three years ago, Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri teamed up with Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, and Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo to create this streetwise musical based on Palminteri’s true-life story.

A BRONX TALE, Broadway’s hit crowd-pleaser, takes 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.

Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Academy and Tony winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Tony nominee Glenn Slater (Love Never Dies), A BRONX TALE is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family.

The New York Times hails A BRONX TALE as “A Critics’ Pick! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry.”
