REVIEW: A Bronx Tale, Original Broadway Cast Recording ✭✭✭✭

A Bronx Tale Cast Recording Review

A Bronx Tale Original Broadway Cast Recording Ghostlight Records 4 Stars Buy A Copy A Bronx Tale is a new Broadway musical with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater. Based on the one man show and later film of the same name that was devised by Chazz Palminteri. It’s great to see Alan Menken return to Broadway with a non-Disney based show. Menken’s ability to channel the musical stylings of the period for which he is writing is perhaps his greatest strength and in A Bronx Tale you are effortlessly transported back in time through the brassy, sax driven pulse of the sixties. A Bronx Tale is the story of a young boy from a working-class family growing up in a neighbourhood dominated by organised crime. Befriending the local mob boss as a young boy, Calogero grows up in the middle of his father ( a bus … Read more

School Of Rock – Winter Garden Theatre

School of Rock on Broadway
Hoping to educate us once again, Andrew Lloyd-Webber returns to Broadway with a brand-new show! Adapted from the 2003 Jack Black movie of the same name, School of Rock is set to feature his bumbling lead character Dewey Finn played by Alex Brightman (Matilda, Big Fish), the hilarious slacker with rock stardom on his mind. Not since 1971 has Andrew Lloyd-Webber launched a show on Broadway before London’s West End, so we can expect that this new production, that will mix songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, will be a rockin’ spectacular! Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a “relatively unknown” TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we’ve never heard it either…. WHAT IS SCHOOL OF ROCK ABOUT? Rock star wannabe Dewey Finn is down on his luck. He’s been kicked out of own band ... Read more
