A Bronx Tale is an Unforgettable Story About Loyalty, Family
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, February 20, 2018 – The North American tour of A Bronx Tale makes its way to Walton Arts Center for eight performances Feb. 26 through March 3. The streetwise musical is based on Academy Award®-nominee Chazz Palminteri’s childhood growing up in the Bronx. And to keep things authentic on stage, all of the food on set is real.
Marley’s Pizzeria in Fayetteville is the official food partner for A Bronx Tale and is providing the food props for each performance which include pizza, breadsticks and a sandwich. Marley’s is providing each item, made to the exact specifications of the show, and delivering them fresh to Walton Arts Center before each performance.
One of the characters in A Bronx Tale, JoJo the Whale, eats each of these items on stage as part of the performance. Because A Bronx Tale brings the culture of Italian-American immigrants in the Bronx to life on stage – which centers so much around family, history and food - the tour works with a local restaurant and uses real food on stage.
During the run of the show, Marley’s is also holding a special promotion with A Bronx Tale-inspired pizza named “The Wise Guy” and a craft cocktail, “The Doo-Wop Double.” Be sure to try a slice before coming to the show!
Based on the one-man play that inspired the now classic film of the same name, this new 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. This is a tale about respect, loyalty, love and above all else, family.
The North American tour of A Bronx Tale is based on a book by Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri, music by Oscar, Grammy® and Tony Award®-winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Grammy Award-winner and Oscar and Tony Award-nominee Glenn Slater, directed by two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niroand four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks,with choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo.
