This new streetwise musical, based on Chazz Palminteri's rough childhood, where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be. Set in the Bronx in the 1960s, when fire escapes and stoops silhouetted the skyline, the score features doo-wop, harmonies, early rock and Sinatra-style ballads by Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty & the Beast)with lyrics by Glenn Slater, who supplied the lyrics for School of Rock.
The production is co-directed by Oscar-winner Robert DeNiro (who co-starred in the movie version of A Bronx Tale(and four-time Tony-winner Jerry Zaks. Tony nominated Nick Cordero (Bullets Over Broadway) plays Sonny.
