“A Bronx Tale” Adapted To Broadway Musical Comes To Crouse Hinds Theater

Bridge Street

The coming-of-age classic, “A Bronx Tale”, is coming to Syracuse after successfully being adapted into a Broadway musical. “We were set up for success already because Chazz Palminteri wrote a wonderful story based on his actual life. A lot of people who go to see this musical don’t realize that this is Chazz Palminteri’s childhood that he’s writing about,” said Jeff Brooks, a Central New York native form Marathon and alumn of SUNY Cortland who’s playing Sonny. “And then you bring a lesser-known composer like Alan Menken in to write music. No one’s heard of him before,” jokes Brooks. Menken is a well-known composer for Disney and Broadway. “It’s just a recipe for success. You can’t help but enjoy what you’re watching.”

The story 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. Brooks describes Sonny, the mob boss, as a tough guy with a softer side giving something lovable to the character he plays. It’s a tale of loyalty and family.

A Bronx Tale will be playing at The Oncenter Crouse Hinds Theater in Syracuse from February 18-20, each showing at 7:30pm. For tickets and more information call (315) 424 – 8210 or visit BroadwayInSyracuse.com.
