In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

CP does a fantastic job of bringing 12 different characters to life and putting together an interesting story of growing up in the Bronx in the 60's.
Great venue (a continuously operating theatre since 1900!) and a very entertaining hour and a half.
In A Bronx Tale, the celebrated play on which he based the legendary movie, Chazz Palminteri brings 18 characters to vivid life in this gripping tale of a rough childhood on the Bronx streets. A Bronx Tale was first mounted Off-Broadway in 1989 and helped establish Palminteri as a writer and actor with a distinct voice. After starring in the feature film adaptation alongside Robert DeNiro, Palminteri brings his original one-man play to Boston with direction by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.
Says Chazz: “A Bronx Tale is a fictionalized story based on a true incident. When I was a young boy growing up in the Bronx, I witnessed a man shoot another man right in front of me while I was sitting on my stoop. At that time, I thought they were fighting over the parking space in front of my building. I never did find out what they were fighting over, but it doesn’t matter now anyway. That incident was how A Bronx Tale began.”
