NEW YORK (AP) — Robert De Niro is coming back to Broadway, but you won’t find him onstage. The Oscar-winner will be co-directing “A Bronx Tale,” this time as a musical.
Chazz Palminteri’s coming-of-age story, which was a one-man play off-Broadway in 1989 and was turned into a movie starring De Niro four years later, now arrives with songs by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater.
The story centers on a young kid from the Bronx who is torn between two worlds and two men: a local mobster and his straight-and-narrow bus-driver father. The musical version played the Paper Mill Playhouse earlier this year.
The show will start performances Nov. 3 at the Longacre Theatre. No casting was announced. Jerry Zaks will direct with De Niro, with choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
