A Bronx Tale Feb 21 - Feb 23, 2020  
Providence Performing Arts Center A Bronx Tale
 
Three years ago, Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri teamed up with Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks and Tony Award nominee Sergio Trujillo to create this streetwise musical, based on Palminteri's true life story. A Bronx Tale, Broadway's hit crowd-pleaser, 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. Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and Glenn Slater (Love Never Dies), A Bronx Tale is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family. The New York Times hails A Bronx Tale as "A Critics' Pick! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry."

This darkly funny, sharply intimate new work chronicles the strained ties between a son and his aging mother, and the weight of a guilty conscience. “Posner’s play is a ravishing slow burn, with layers that quietly unpeel as the piece goes on… quite simply, a marvel!” – New York Magazine.

One morning in 1780, a woman named Peggy Shippen seemed to go stark raving mad.

Using minimal technical elements and a cast of four, Peggy & the Mad Scenes examines this pivotal moment in American history and the effect one woman had on some of the nation’s most legendary figures. Presented as part of the Resident Artist Program at Chelsea Theatre Works.
