FSU Alum, Christiani Pitts (BFA Music Theatre ’15) is set to make her Broadway debut in the new musical, A Bronx Tale, set to open December 1, 2017 at the Longacre Theatre.
Christiani will perform alongside Tony Award® nominee Nick Cordero (Bullets Over Broadway, Waitress), and Ariana DeBose (Hamilton, Pippin). A Bronx Tale is directed by Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, who directed and starred in the 1993 film adaptation.
As stated on Longacre Theatre website: “Based on the one-man show that inspired the now classic film, this streetwise musical takes it’s audiences 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. Featuring an original doo-wop score, this is a tale about respect, loyalty, love and above all else: family.” Click here for more information on A Bronx Tale.
Tallahassee audiences may remember Christiani by her portrayal of Fraülein Sally Bowles in the School of Theatre’s production of Cabaret. While in Tallahassee, she was also featured in Company (Marta) and Ragtime (Sarah’s Friend). For more information on Christiani, click here.
