When you go to New York, one thing every tourist wants to do is see a Broadway show. I’ve been lucky to have gone to NY a few times now, but I’ve never really seen any shows. Weird right? This time I made sure to plan accordingly, and my group and I decided to go watch A Bronx Tale.
A Bronx Tale is based off the 1993 movie directed by Robert De Niro, which is adapted from Chazz Palminteri’s 1989 play. Long story short, A Bronx Tale has always been one of my favorite movies growing up. “It tells the coming of age story of an Italian-American boy, Calogero Anello, who, after encountering a local mafia boss, is torn between the temptations of organized crime and the values of his honest, hardworking father.”
When you love a certain book, a movie, or a song, its extremely difficult to love a remake of that art. But, this play did the movie justice. It didn’t feel like I was watching a play. The acting, the music, everything was perfect!! It was so good that the boys in our group couldn’t stop talking about it!
If you ever find yourself in New York, and can’t decide on a show to watch, strongly consider this one.. if its still on that is!
